Yet again, our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and families affected by a senseless and devastating act of violence. In an attack on innocent worshippers leaving prayers, one man was killed and a number of people injured outside Muslim Welfare House in Finsbury Park early this morning.
For the deceased may Allah grant him paradise and his family Sabr and for the injured pray they make a swift recovery.
ALL acts of terror and crimes against humanity must be condemned. During this time, we call on all, including the media, to act responsibly in not stirring up further tensions. The only way to combat hate is through understanding and our doors remain open to all those who want to know more about our community. We must stand together, and not allow ourselves to be torn apart by any individuals seeking to divide communities through hate and fear.
