A large group of UK Muslim community leaders have condemned “in strongest terms” the recent terror attacks in London and Manchester, saying British Muslims remain united against “the cold-blooded murder of innocent people.”
“We are deeply hurt that a spate of terror attacks has been committed in our country once more by murderers who seek to gain religious legitimacy for their actions,” over 130 religious leaders said in a statement on Monday. “We seek to clarify that their reprehensible actions have neither legitimacy nor our sympathy.”
On Saturday night, three suspects killed seven people and injured 48 more in separate attacks in London before being gunned down by police.
The attack came days after a deadly bombing in Manchester, which killed 22 people and injured over 120.
