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.

*** Manchester Attack. 23rd May 2017 ***

Short Statement from BMCS and Prayers. Pleases find below a short statement that was put out on Facebook with some prayers.

Unfortunately for the second time this year as a nation most of us are feeling a sense of shock and sadness at the sickening news of the terrible attack that unfolded in Manchester last night

Firstly our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families and those affected. This is an absolutely disgusting attack on innocent people and an attack on all of us as a country.

Putting aside the incredible anger I feel towards the attacker, it is simply mind boggling to comprehend how a so called human being can become so out of touch with their own humanity and values that they think that such a barbaric act is justified.

Once again whilst awaiting further updates we can only speculate on the motives of the twisted mind or minds behind the attack.

I simply don’t have the words anymore to express the anger and sadness that I feel right now. But I do know that despite the fact that this horrific incident will no doubt heighten tensions between communities in the UK, I also know that the majority of us will once again reach down deep within ourselves and tap into our national spirit to stand together united as individuals, communities, cities and as a nation to maintain calm to ensure that such evil and misguided acts don’t succeed in dividing us.

We also need to credit the professionalism of the Emergency services and Police who handled the situation with the excellence we have come to expect of them.

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.
