They said the people who carried out the terror attack on Saturday night were ben on sowing seeds of hatred
Members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community said they were deeply saddened and shocked by the ‘brutal and barbaric’ events in London, which resulted in seven people being killed and 48 injured.
The attacks began with a van being driven into a crowd of people on London Bridge. Three men then drove to the nearby Borough Market and started attacking people with knives, before being shot dead by armed police.
Shakil Ahmed, President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Swansea said: “The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community unequivocally condemns in the strongest possible terms Saturday’s terrorist attack in London. All acts of terrorism and extremism are vile criminal acts that are completely unjustifiable.
“We express our deepest sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims and pray for a full and speedy recovery of those injured. We also commend the excellent work of emergency services, who responded in a matter of minutes. We are proud of them.
“This latest attack follows the horrific attacks at Westminster Bridge and the suicide bombing in Manchester and it is clear that such murderers are bent on sowing the seeds of hatred and division. As before, they will not succeed.
“Such acts find no hiding place in Islam for it rejects extremism and terrorism in any form and for any reason. We will continue to stand united against extremism and work with all who seek peace to defeat this ideology of hate.”
