ISNA Condemns Violent Killing in the United Kingdom and Applauds Prime Minister Cameron’s Statement
The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is shocked by the horrific violent act of two men in London, U.K. ISNA condemns it in the strongest possible terms and trusts that those responsible will be held accountable to the full extent of the law. Nothing they believed or did represents the beliefs or actions of observant Muslims in the U.K. and around the world.
ISNA applauds the sentiment expressed by British Prime Minister David Cameron that “This was not just an attack on Britain and on the British way of life. It was also a betrayal of Islam and of the Muslim communities who give so much to our country.”
ISNA admires the courage of ordinary British citizens who confronted the attackers. Our hearts go out to the loved ones of the victim. Our determination to continue our work for peace and justice by practicing the cardinal values of our faith remains as strong as ever.
Dr. Iqbal Unus, ISNA Secretary General
