AMS UK statement regarding recent terror attacks
The Association of Muslim Schools completely condemns the terror attacks that took place on Friday 26 June in France, Kuwait, Somalia, Syria and Tunisia, costing the lives of over 160 people and injuring over 300. These attacks, perpetrated by the contemptible ISIS group, are nothing short of evil and wholly un-Islamic.
Chairman Ashfaque Chowdhury said, “These attacks are wholly unacceptable and are a dishonour to the holy month of Ramadan. This group does not and cannot represent Islam in any way. We offer our sincerest condolences to the families of the innocent victims of these attacks, including 18 people from here in Great Britain who were killed in Tunisia, and strongly urge our communities, particularly young people, to resist this abominable group and to not link it with Islam. We remind everyone that the Qur’an explicitly forbids murder and groups like ISIS and their supporters represent the absolute worst of humanity.”
The Association supports initiatives such as the Bedfordshire Police Anti-Radicalisation website and will continue to work to fight against terror groups.[ENDS]
