Ramadhan Foundation press release 

BARCELONA TERRORIST ATTACK

Published: Thursday 17th August 2017 19:35

Mr Mohammed Shafiq, Chief Executive of Manchester based Ramadhan Foundation comments:


"On behalf of the Ramadhan Foundation I want express my utter disgust at the terrorist attack in Barcelona today. Our thoughts, prayers and condolences go out to the victims and the injured. 


Spain is a resilient country and will overcome this evil no matter whatever happens through love and unity. 


These terrorists share an evil ideology which distorts the great faith of Islam. Let me be clear Islam forbids such despicable crimes and supports all efforts to bring the culprits to justice. 


As Muslims we stand with the rest of humanity against such barbaric crimes. We reaffirm our commitment to peace, tolerance and protecting human life. 


The terrorists set out to divide communities and in that we must not allow them to succeed. 


Solidarity and love to the city of Barcelona and people of Spain. 


End
