The Muslim Council of Britain is united in its solidarity with the Jewish community following news that hostages were killed at a Kosher supermarket in Paris.
The unfolding events in France these past few days have undoubtedly horrified everyone, not least Muslims from around the world. We must work hard to defy those who wish to divide communities.
We echo the reaction of France’s President Francois Hollande who said: “Those who committed these acts, these fanatics, have nothing to do with the Muslim faith.” Unity, as the French President has rightly said, is our best weapon.
The Muslim Council of Britain is reaching out to Jewish organisations here in Britain to offer its support at this difficult time.
