PRESS RELEASE

GLMCC Condemns London Bridge Attack

On the 29th November, an atrocious attack was made upon innocent people in London. Green Lane Masjid and Community Centre (GLMCC) is saddened to hear of the deaths of two victims. Our thoughts and condolences are with their families, the injured and all those affected.

While details are still emerging, we encourage people to remain calm and await the full facts of the investigation.

Mohammed Saeed, Chair of Trustees at GLMCC commented:

We must not allow the perpetrators of such awful attacks to meet their aims of causing division and fear amongst our communities. We hold firmly on our belief;

“Whoever kills an innocent soul, it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one – it is as if he had saved mankind entirely.” [Qur’an 5:32].

As we have seen in previous incidents, there are perverse and distorted minds that seek to create disunity in our society.

GLMCC strongly condemns such crimes. We encourage everyone to show solidarity and counter the narrative of those behind all forms of malicious hatred.
