Muslim leaders have condemned terror attacks across London ahead of an event billed as the "largest Islamic convention in the UK".

Some 30,000 Muslims from 100 countries will gather for the three day event, known as Jalsa Salana, in Hampshire.

Caliph Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, chief of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community which has organised the event, renounced terrorists who launched atrocities on London Bridge and at Westminster.

He said attackers Khalid Masood, Khuram Butt, Rachid Redouane and Youssef Zaghba had “no knowledge of Islam”.

The Caliph said: “Recently, terrorist organisations have started to regularly commit the most barbaric atrocities in Western countries by taking the lives of innocent people.

“The terrorists have no knowledge of Islam because otherwise they would realise that the Holy Prophet of Islam forbade the murder of innocent people under any circumstances and even during a state of war.”

The statement comes months after Masood ploughed into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before fatally stabbing PC Keith Palmer to death outside the gates of Westminster in March.

In June, Butt, Redouane and Zaghba mowed down Saturday night revellers on London Bridge before launching a knife attack on nearby Borough Market.

The Islamic State claimed responsibility for both atrocities which, combined, left 13 innocent victims dead.

The convention will take place across 200 acre site at a Hampshire farm between July 28 and 30.

It will see worshippers form a human chain to touch the Caliph’s hand.
