London terror attack: Hundreds gather to remember victims one week after atrocity

In Latest News, Press & In The Media,

Huge crowds stood together and in silence on Westminster Bridge on Wednesday (March 29) to remember the victims of the London terror attack exactly one week after the atrocity .

They gathered at the scene of the bloodshed in a vigil to remember the victims of attacker Khalid Masood.

 

Five people died, including the attacker who was shot by armed officers, and many more were injured.

Organisers of the sombre memorial, which included a minute’s silence at 2.40pm when the 82-second attack began, said they wanted the event to show “we will not be divided” and to link people together.

Among those present were hundreds of members of the Muslim community, with imams carrying flowers, and members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association standing in respect.

Banners reading “Love for All, Hatred for None”, “Islam says No to Terror” and “Islam Means Peace” were seen on display.

One of those taking part was Faiz Nasir. He said: “We’re here today because our community strongly condemns what happened a few days ago here at Westminster Bridge. We are against all forms of extremism. We stand together.”
