Muslim communities in UK condemn terror attacks

London (IINA) – Muslim communities across the United Kingdom have condemned the terror attacks in London and Manchester.

In Leeds, one mosque leader, who, along with 130 other imams, has refused to say funeral prayers for the London attackers, told ITV News that it was important to tackle the root cause of extremism.

“We have a wider role to play in tackling extremism,” Qari Asim said.

“That’s obviously firstly being vigilant and reporting whenever we see an indication of extremism, but at the same time I think we need to dig a bit deeper … and tackle those root causes to ensure that not one more life is lost on our soil.”

That the sentiment is shared elsewhere moderate Muslims are agreed enough is enough, but they want everyone to play their part.
