Mr Mohammed Shafiq, CEO of the Ramadhan Foundation comments: 

“I strongly condemn the stabbing incident at Manchester Arndale Shopping Centre. This was an appalling attack against people going about their lives. Out city has been tested in the past and will always answer with unity and with a resolute response against such violence. 

The person responsible has been arrested and the Police are investigating. We call upon anyone with any information to bring to the attention of counter terrorism police. 

I want to pay tribute to the Emergency services who have helped in the aftermath and through their bravery stopped the attack from being more brutal. 

The Ramadhan Foundation reiterates it’s condemnation of all terrorism and violence. It can never be justified. Whether in Manchester, Christchurch or Halle faith communities will come together. 

Our city of Manchester is a vibrant, diverse and united place and we will not allow anyone to divide us.  

We are heartened with the additional presence of police on the streets which offers reassurance the authorities will do everything to keep us safe.”
