Dundee’s Ahmadiyya community say they will stand shoulder to shoulder with everyone in the UK to defeat extremism.

The group, who operate a mosque on Dundee’s Dens Road, “unequivocally” condemned the barbaric attacks which left dozens dead in Manchester and London.

Dundee Ahmadiyya president Shoaib Khan described the attacks as “vile criminal acts”.

Shoaib said: “The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community unequivocally condemns in the strongest possible terms Saturday’s terrorist attack in London. All acts of terrorism and extremism are vile criminal acts that are completely unjustifiable.

“We express our deepest sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims and pray for a full and speedy recovery of those injured. We also commend the excellent work of emergency services, who responded in a matter of minutes. We are proud of them.

“This latest attack follows the horrific attacks at Westminster Bridge and the suicide bombing in Manchester, and it is clear that such murderers are bent on sowing the seeds of hatred and division. As before, they will not succeed.

“Such acts find no hiding place in Islam for it rejects extremism and terrorism in any form, and for any reason. We will continue to stand united against extremism and work with all who seek peace to defeat this ideology of hate.”

Imam Qasid Ahmad Shahid said: “The Ahmadiyya community is shocked by the brutal attacks in London and Manchester.

“We condemn this in the strongest possible terms.

“We express our deepest sympathies to the victims.”

Dundee’s Ahmadiyya community carry out a range of charitable efforts throughout the year, including taking part in fun-runs and cleaning up Dundee’s Law.
