Muslim Council of Wales on the Finsbury Park Terror Attack

Following the news of the terror attack in Finsbury Park last night, the Muslim Council of Wales has issued the following statement:

“The Muslim Council of Wales is horrified by the news of the attack on Muslim worshippers on Sunday evening. Our prayers are with the victims.

“It is even more horrific that there is a potential Welsh link with the attacker. We trust the authorities and police investigation, and await further information.

“We hope that this is an opportunity for communities to come together, as our nation has done with terror attacks in the past, and with the Grenfell disaster.

“Unfortunately, so long as Muslims are held collectively guilty for terror attacks committed by those with a Muslim identity, then Islamophobic violence against Muslims will remain common. The responsibility is on politicians and the media to discuss all cases of terrorism with care and diligence.

“One year ago Jo Cox was assassinated on the street. This weekend was declared by the Jo Cox Foundation as a moment to celebrate her legacy – that we have more in common than divides us. We urge all to remember her message today.”
