Woolwich

22/5/13, we learnt of a man been brutally murdered in a machete attack in Woolwich, South East London. Two suspects have been arrested after being shot and wounded in a police fire. Met Police have said a murder inquiry is being led by its Counter Terrorism Department. There are unconfirmed reports that the dead man was a soldier.

My deepest prayers and condolences go out to the victim and his family and friends. I hope the murderers and anyone else who may be in connection to this heinous crime are brought swiftly to justice and pay for the agony and pain caused.

The people who carried out the attack were heard saying “Allahu Akbar” meaning “God is Great” – BBC political editor Nick Robinson reported.

Thugs and murderers are not serving God, they have no place in religion with this act of violence and crime. I and many, many other Muslims and non Muslims worldwide condemn such a hideous action of hatred wholeheartedly. Islam and God completely forbid these people for what they have done with the harshest punishment.

“Whoever slays a soul, unless it be for manslaughter or for mischief in the land, it is as though he slew all men.” – Qur’an 5:32

It is sad to hear these types of violence taking place in Britain and in other parts of the world. Street violence is a problem especially in the UK. As “self proclaimed thugs” walk the streets in broad daylight hours causing havoc in public; we as ordinary people of the country suffer greatly and even more so the victims. As a society we should find this alarming. We should question what is happening and what is being done about it rather than blindly nod our heads along with politicians. Is the government more interested in foreign policy and intervention than the problems occurring within our youths today? What are they prioritising? What efforts are they making? Pressuring the government in these types of issues and unifying our condemnation are the first steps towards banishing such acts of violence off our streets.
