More than 130 imams and religious leaders throughout the UK have joined voices in strongly condemning recent terrorist attacks in London and Manchester, calling the acts "cold-blooded murders."
In a joint statement issued June 5, the imams and other religious leaders said they condemn the recent terror attacks in Manchester and London "in the strongest terms possible."
Coming from a range of backgrounds across the UK, the signatories said that in "feeling the pain the rest of the nation feels, we have come together to express our shock and utter disgust at these cold-blooded murders."
In an unprecedented move, the imams who signed the statement also declared that they will not perform the traditional Islamic funeral prayer for the attackers.
