London. June 6. INTERFAX – More than 130 British imams refused to perform the funeral prayer for the terrorists who attacked people in London.
“We’re not going to do the traditional memorial prayer on the criminals and call upon our brethren and religious leaders to deny them this honor. Their unjustified actions completely at odds with the exalted teachings of Islam,” the statement said Islamic leaders, quoted by the guardian.
They stated that they feel “shock and disgust against the cold-blooded killers”.
In turn, the Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain Harun Khan said that the Islamic Ummah are ready to cooperate fully with authorities to make the country safer.
On Saturday evening, the criminals on the van at high speed drove onto the sidewalk on London bridge. Then they got out of the car and attacked with hunting knives on passers-by. The attack happened at the borough market in Vauxhall. According to the latest data, seven people were killed and 48 were injured. Responsibility for the attack claimed by the group “Islamic state” (banned in Russia).
