Imams snub London Bridge killers

06 Juin, 2017, 10:22 | Author: Come Portier

A group of Muslim leaders yesterday called on other imams to refuse the rite of funeral prayers to the London and Manchester attackers.

Members of the East London Mosque have hit out at the actions of Khuram Shazad Butt, Rachid Redouane, and a third terrorist, saying their actions go against the core teachings of Islam. "This is because such indefensible actions are completely at odds with the lofty teachings of Islam", the statement said. "I want to make that very clear".

'The cold-blooded murder of innocent people in London on Saturday evening will not succeed in driving us apart.

'Your misguidance will lead you to destruction, and God willing you will utterly fail in your evil aims. Terrorism has no faith'.

'We urge all our Muslim women attending the workplace and religious places to report any kind of hate crime they may face, ' she said. Minister for Foreign Affairs Charlie Flanagan made this exact point on RTÉ about the latest horrific terror attack in London as did British prime minister Teresa May.

'A tendency to scapegoat Islam or our Muslim neighbours should be unequivocally rejected'.

Community leaders urged calm, but at Speakers' Corner in London's Hyde Park - one of the capital's most famous places for public speaking - there was evidence of growing tensions in the capital as a Muslim speaker holding a copy of the Quran was denounced by some passers-by as "a disgrace".

Muslims in the United Kingdom condemned the last terrorist attacks carried, saying that those attackers who kill and terrorize have religion as a mask as they do not represent Islam and share twisted beliefs.

Finally, Sheikh Ibrahim Mogra stressed that it's important to "acknowledge that Islam as a religion condemns these atrocities" and that "the Muslim community can not be held to account as a whole and be expected to solve this on its own".

Seven people were killed and almost 50 injured in the attack in which a van was driven into pedestrians on London Bridge before three assailants walked to Borough Markets, stabbing innocents and shouting "This is for Allah" as they went.

Arif attempted to deliver a message that said that terrorism never represented Islam. It is the Islamic duty of every Muslim to be loyal to the country in which they live and we are now asking questions - to understand how extremism and hatred has taken hold within some elements of our own communities.

"We stand together with our Muslim communities and condemn any type of backlash or Islamaphobic attacks".
