The attacks once again in Paris are horriﬁc and abhorrent, and we condemn this violence in the strongest possible terms. My thoughts and prayers goes out to the families of those killed and injured and for the people of France, our neighbours.
It is an attack not just on the people of France, but on all of the us here in Britain, on our fundamental and personal freedoms. It was equally an attack upon Islam and the legacy of it’s teacher Muhammad (SAW).
We stand behind our Prime Minister, who conveys our message of condolence to the French people and shares our resolve.
We believe that individual liberty is a light and a gift from God – a higher Islamic purpose for social justice and greater good.
The act of terrorism in Paris today is a stark reminder of what we can take for granted, of what is worth protecting and ﬁghting for.
This attack is being claimed by the group calling themselves ‘Islamic State’. There is nothing Islamic about such people and their actions are evil, and outside the boundaries set by our faith.
This week we have once again witnessed outrageous attacks, be that in Beirut earlier in the week or Paris today – there is no justiﬁcation for such carnage whatsoever. We hope the remaining people responsible are brought to justice and face the full force of the law.
