Members of a minority Muslim sect joined police officers on Westminster Bridge to mark the one week anniversary of a terrorist attack.

Hundreds of Ahmadiyya Muslims held flowers and banners that read ‘Love for all, hatred for none’ at the vigil to show solidarity with the victims.

On Wednesday March 22 Khalid Masood bowed down pedestrians on the bridge with his car, killing three, before stabbing PC Keith Palmer outside Parliament.

The imam of Bait ul Ahad Mosque in Erskine Road, Walthamstow, and a group of worshippers joined the march.

Chairman of the mosque Mubashir Siddiqi said: “People are scared so we came out today to show that we are not scared after this attack that took the lives of innocent people.

“The main purpose of today is to show people there is no room for violence in Islam.

“We are trying very hard to give a positive message to society but unfortunately a few members go against this.

“We have to show that we are united and with the people and we are loyal to our country.”

The Bait ul Ahad Mosque has 600 members.

The Ahmaddiya Muslim Community, which established itself in the UK in 1912, is the longest standing Islamic group in the country.
