Barcelona Terror Attack

Posted on: 17 August 2017

Hounslow Jamia Masjid offers its condolences to the families of those affected by today's terror attack in Barcelona.

Whether an attack on humanity takes place in our own country or another, the spirit of human brotherhood is what binds us and we are grieved at recent events, those in Charlottesville, Burina Faso and elsewhere.

Although such acts should not be attributed to those of the Muslim faith, recent times have shown that there will be more focus on Muslims. More vigilance is needed but above all more voices spreading the true teachings of our beautiful religion are needed. As a community we need to collectively do more. Be proactive, not reactive.
