The Association of Muslim Schools UK is shocked and saddened by the incident at Westminster earlier today. We condemn this horrific and cowardly attack and our thoughts and prayers are for the victims and those affected, including the brave policeman who gave his life serving his country.

We pay tribute too to the police and emergency services who handled this with exceptional bravery. The Palace of Westminster is the centre of our democracy and we must all ensure that it continues to serve our country and its people with safety and security.
