SEEFF Statement on NZ Double Mosque Terror Attacks

We deplore the violent and senseless terror attacks, which occurred at the Al Noor and Linwood mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families who through this horrific event have lost loved ones, and also with those who are injured.

It is more important than ever that we, as people of all faiths and none, unite against all forms of violence, extremism, racism and terrorism.

There have been many examples of people coming together in solidarity and prayer all over the UK and indeed, the world.

In recent days and months we have seen killings in places of worship of different faiths. As a faith forum representative of various faiths we pray for tolerance so that each may sit under their vine or fig tree and none shall be afraid.

On behalf of South East England Faiths Forum
