Press Statement from Amina – MWRC
AMINA condemns the recent attacks and subsequent tragic loss of life in Beirut, Paris and elsewhere. These actions do not represent Islam or Muslims in any way or manner. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and loved ones of those who lost their lives in such a needless way.
We endorse the response of solidarity from the British people and specifically the British Muslim community, who stand united in the face of all forms of terrorism.
Amina believes it is important that our stance against such attacks does not include blaming those who are most in need of help - refugees must be welcomed without suspicion and blame. We also believe that these events should not lead to a restriction of the freedoms we support and have all sought to protect
We call upon all levels of government to work collaboratively towards better understanding of the causes of such atrocities in order to create a just and peaceful future.
Amina will continue to work with all levels of Government and the voluntary sector to ensure the voices of Muslim women are heard and to challenge the misrepresentation of Islam and Muslims wherever it takes place.
