SHAFAQNA – Al-Khoei Foundation is appalled and horrified by the tragic attack in Manchester last night. Our prayers and thoughts are with the family and friends of the dead and those injured.
Only cowards and those lacking in humanity would perpetrate an attack on innocent civilians and children going about their daily lives.
No doubt the voices of hate and echoes of bigotry will do their utmost to fan the flames of racism and discrimination. Britain is a resilient society, however. We are certain that the country will come together, as it always has, in the face of atrocities and callous attacks intended on dividing us. We will continue to work together with other communities to ensure that terrorists can never divide us.
We would like to pay tribute to our emergency services for their bravery and professionalism in dealing with this atrocity.
