OPEN LETTER RESPONSE TO EMAIL RECEIVED FOLLOWING LAST NIGHT'S TERRORIST ATTACK

Posted on: 04 June 2017

Dear XXXX

Peace be upon you. 
Thank you for your email. As Muslims, as fellow Yorkshire people and as fellow human beings we (once again) condemn the sickening terrorism we saw in London last night in the strongest terms. If there was anything we could do to stop this mindless violence in the name of our faith, believe us, we would do it. We are as worried and frightened as you are. This is our home and the home of our children and we have always sought to live in peace with all other communities. We have nothing to do with these terrorists.

Finally, you and your family are welcome to visit our centre at any time. We must pull together as a community and not be divided, as this is exactly what these vile extremists seek to achieve.

Best wishes

The IB Centre

As-salam alaykom
I looked up on the internet the polite way to greet you. I hope I got it right. My son (please don't look him up. Its me talking, not him) attends school within a mile of your house of prayer. I am a white woman. A non church goer in fact. I hear you wont listen to people like me. But I am contacting you because I want you to speak up and please speak out against those that are hurting our country, our people and our children. I want to please hear you, a fellow Yorkshire person, speak up for peace and speak out against the terrorists who have hurt people in London tonight. I can't listen to any more news of people being killed and frightened. I am old enough to remember reading about racist riots. I don't understand why fellow citizens want to kill and maim our people in the name of the Islamic faith. When you don't speak out, what do I tell my children? Please do what you can to stop this killing. I am begging you.
