Minhaj-ul-Quran International UK is deeply horrified and saddened to learn of last night's explosion in the Manchester Arena, which the police are treating as a terrorist incident.
Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been killed or injured and our deepest condolences with their families and loved ones.
We urge our different communities to remain steadfast in togetherness and in peace, whoever may be responsible for this terrible act. As members of civilised society we condemn its barbarism and cowardliness.
We applaud the prompt actions of our emergency services who have managed the incident so effectively.
