“..Whoever kills an innocent soul.. it is as if he killed the whole of mankind, And whoever saves one, it is as if he saved the whole of mankind” [The Quran, 5:32]
Not In Our Name
The Muslim communities across Britain are united in condemning the terrible atrocities of July 7 th in London . We are united with the rest of the country at this sad time and pray for the victims' families and those injured. We have also lost close friends and relatives. Islam forbids the killing of innocent people. We reject anyone who tries to link such brutal acts to the teachings of Islam. We will not allow our faith to be hijacked by a few extremists. British Muslims should not be held responsible for the acts of a few individuals. We are determined to work with the wider society to remove pockets of all forms of extremism in Britain . We urge the media and politicians to maintain the values of our open society, free from prejudice, sustained by tolerance and mutual respect that cares for all.
We dedicate ourselves to work harder to serve the common good of British society.
We commit ourselves to building better partnerships with schools, businesses, government and faith communities to address racism, islamophobia and social exclusion.
We call on the international community to work towards a just and lasting peace in areas of conflict around the world to help eliminate the grievances that nurtures violence.
The unity of our society must be maintained and we should not allow divisions to emerge between citizens of Britain . We must remain friends, neighbours and colleagues and take Britain forward as one nation.
