“Hindu Council UK Statement on the Terrorist attack in London”

The Hindu Council UK is saddened, appalled and angered by the wicked, brutal and evil terrorist attacks on London Bridge and Borough Market. Our Thoughts, Prayers and Condolences are with those innocent people who have been killed and injured in this mindless attack.

Once again we commend and pay tribute to our Police and Emergency Services who saved so many lives and continue to work hard to keep us safe. We owe them a deep debt of gratitude.

The fact that this terrorist attack was carried out during the month of Ramadan, when Muslims pray and fast, just illustrates again that these people are not real Muslims, but are cowards who neither respect religion or life. Nobody from any Faith cruelly takes human lives to fulfil a religious need – This is an excuse to kill in the name of religion. 

We stand in solidarity with all the Faiths in the UK in condemning this atrocity.

It is a difficult world we live in today – But we simply can not let this misguided and awful ideology to carry on affecting not just the people of UK but people across the World. Defeating this sick ideology is one of the greatest challenges the World has ever had to face and things are going to have to change……

These cowardly, evil terrorists can never defeat the precious values which we hold at the heart of our great country.

Prayers for all the victims who have been killed and injured will be held at Hindu Places of Worship across the UK.
