Kiwi Muslim community condemns London attacks

Nice France terror attack

Nice France terror attack

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community spans more than 209 countries with membership exceeding tens of millions.

Arif admitted it was hard, as a representative of the Muslim community, to defend Islam in the wake of two terror attacks in the United Kingdom within a fortnight, but said it also offered him a chance to clear up misconceptions about the religion.

The latest showing comes after thousands of Muslim men, women and children participated in a "peace walk" following a separate terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena on May 22.

"Our hearts and prayers go out to those who have been affected, the bereaved and the victims themselves".

"Islam is not a religion as portrayed by these so-called Muslims". A true Muslim, he only has two purposes.

Local Muslim leaders are sharply condemning the London attacks, and they are especially upset they occurred just one week into the Holy month of Ramadan.

He added: "Islam is a religion that says if you kill an innocent soul it's akin to killing the whole of humanity and if you save an innocent soul it's akin to saving the whole of humanity".

Seifullah said many Muslims fear the backlash that can follow attacks like the one in London.

"As members of British Society, we must continue to condemn all acts of terror, and we must not allow these criminals to spread hatred and fear; and we must foil their attempts to divide us", they stated.

"We want to tell people that what they hear in the media or from other people, is not what Islam represents".

Harun Khan, Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain, also expressed his revulsion at the attacks. We also commend the excellent work of emergency services, who responded in a matter of minutes.
