Bristol Muslim Cultural Society (BMCS) was established in 1986 and is one of the oldest voluntary sector non-profit making organisations in the City. We are based in Easton, at the heart of a culturally diverse inner city area of Bristol.

Our aim is to empower the Muslim community in Bristol and the surrounding area to further the economic (employment, enterprise, training) educational, recreational, cultural and social needs of the Muslim community, while encouraging their active participation in mainstream society, and provide support to interested stakeholders.

*** Finsbury Park Attack – 19th June 2017 ***

As a nation most of us will be once again reeling with a sense of shock and sadness at the news of yet another terror attack. This time in Finsbury Park, London. Firstly our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families and those affected.

This is an absolutely disgusting attack on innocent people. No sane human could justify such behaviour. As an act of extreme violence it was once again an attack on all of us a nation.

Sadly again at a loss for appropriate words to describe my feelings I’m forced to question how a so-called human being’s heart can become so darkened, blinded and filled with hate that it resorts to such barbaric behaviour. The timing of this attack is especially shocking as we are still mourning our dead from the recent Grenfell Fire.

As they say terror has no religion. It only has hate.

In recent years we rightly brought a stop to someone like Anjem Choudhry who’s hate filled views caused division and disunity in our country. In the same vein now we need to tackle the hate filled views espoused by the likes of Paul Golding of Britain First, Tommy Robinson and many others etc that have been given free reign to cause discord in our country.

Their vile and hate loaded views are contrary to a British way of life of working in unity and harmony for a better and stronger nation.

No doubt their words and views inspired the likes of the man who sadly killed MP Jo Cox last year and possibly inspired the person who carried out this recent attack. I’m sure these same views also offer a twisted inspiration and validation to those who carry out acts of xenophobic violence and vandalism on innocent people day in day out in recent times up and down the country.

This is not about them versus us.

This is about hope versus hate.

Let’s all work together as a nation to ensure that hope wins.

As usual I close with the prayers that seem to have become apt for these unfortunate situations.

Let's pray that Allah helps the victims and their families at this difficult time. Ameen.

Let's pray that Allah brings the evil people behind such attacks here or anywhere in the world to justice swiftly. Ameen.

Let's pray that once again as a nation and continent we have the courage and resolve to stay united and stand together in the face of such abhorrent acts of evil. Ameen.

A heavy-hearted.
