Response to the terror attack in Finsbury Park
Neil Jameson, director, Citizens UK, said:
"We awake to more horrific news of terrorism on our streets, this time at the Muslim Welfare House, in Finsbury Park. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, families and friends of those affected by this hideous act of violence. The timing of the attack to target Londoners, many of whom were breaking their fast as part of the holy month of Ramadan, and after many of our communities, including the Muslim Welfare House, had joined together to celebrate the Great Get Together in memory of Jo Cox MP, seems a deliberate challenge to our message of unity; however we will remain united.
“The Muslim Welfare House is a Citizens UK member institution along with 350 others across the country; including churches, mosques, synagogues, schools, colleges, trades unions and local community groups. We work together on issues of the common good, because together we are stronger and more powerful to make change happen for our communities. The institutions and people of North London will respond to this attack with love, support and respect for each other, and together we will continue to work as one because we have more in common than divides us."
