We are shocked by the violence and loss of life in our neighbouring country, France. We at The Islamic Foundation UK strongly condemn these heinous acts which in no way embody the spirit of Islam. We send our sympathy and sincerest condolences to families of those who have been affected.
This sad and shocking attack was an attempt to divide and destabilise a diverse European society and tarnish the name of Islam, taking so many innocent lives with it. If it was meant to serve the cause of the oppressed Muslims then it only helped to undermine it. We only hope that it will give us as brothers and sisters in humanity further drive to stand in solidarity against injustice in all its forms. While there is injustice, there is no peace and it is that which we must all hope and pray for for all people. Let us also remember to spare thoughts and prayers for the people of Syria, Lebanon and other parts of the world who have suffered immensely through war and terrorism in recent days.
May God guide us, strengthen us and enable us to rectify our world and strive for a better tomorrow, ameen.
