I read the news release from the Muslim Council of Britain today.

130 imams and religious leaders condemning what’s happened and refusing to perform the funeral prayer for the London attackers.

“Consequently, and in light of other such ethical principles which are quintessential to Islam, we will not perform the traditional Islamic funeral prayer over the perpetrators and we also urge fellow imams and religious authorities to withdraw such a privilege. This is because such indefensible actions are completely at odds with the lofty teachings of Islam.”

I worked with a guy called Anwar, he had a sharp mind and a beautiful peaceful outlook.  His wife, when I used to car share with Anwar for work, was welcoming always offering food.

His kids always had bright smiles.

We all need to stand together, all of us whatever faith, to isolate and shine the light on those who hide in the shadows of their faith.  Who would scheme to murder the innocent for their own evil ends.

I’ve read on social media different views of this release..skeptical, optimism, support, anger and mocking.

History can bring positive change, or it can provide justification of a cause.  

It’s my nature to be optimist, I hope this news release brings positive change.
