Suspected Arson Attacks – United London Stands

We, as representatives of nine of London's faith communities, stand united in solidarity in our disgust at the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich, the suspected arson attacks on an Islamic centre in Muswell Hill and a Muslim school in Chislehurst. None of these are a legitimate means to express grievance. None of these are representative of a faith that we recognise. None of these show pride in being British. We know religion and we know British pride. It is about a shared commitment to the common good of our city and our country. That is our mission. That is our faith. We welcome the comments of the Mayor of London, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner and many of London's leaders, condemning this violence and calling for unity. In spite of the attempts of extremists to divide us, it is clear that victory will ultimately lie with peace, hope and love. United London Stands. faithsforum4london.org
