Events of 7th July 2005
Like all British people, the Muslim community reacted with shock and outrage at the underground explosions and the bomb aboard a London bus that has left 52 people dead, including 6 Muslims. The perpetrators – if they claim to be Muslim – have through their actions mutilated a religion of peace. As many British Muslim organisations have noted in their statements, everyone is a victim in a situation like this.
This Salaam report documents organization’s statements made on the day, analyses and trends and subsequent developments within the community.
