During Jummah prayers on 15 March 2019, 50 innocent lives were lost, in a heart-breaking attack by a gunman at the Al Noor Mosque and the Linwood Islamic Centre in Christchurch, New Zealand. Immediately following this, our network has united in love and support to stand in solidarity with the Muslim community. We have come together to condemn not only hatred, violence and extremism but to demonstrate to those that seek division, that we will stand together.
This weekend members of our network have joined and organised vigils, visited mosques in solidarity and came together to honour the lives lost.
Our members have come out in solidarity:
Our trustees Ahmereen Reza and Akeela Ahmed at a vigil at Regent’s Park Mosque with Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, James Brokenshire MP
Our Edgware group came together to reflect in solidarity and to share an act of kindness, hospitality and love.
