LONDON: Minhaj-ul-Quran International UK held an event to mark the fifth anniversary of 7/7, which has been attended by representatives of various faiths, police, local government and young people. Vast majority of British Muslims feel the pain of people killed unjustly in the 7/7 attacks and denounce the extremist ideology. The event focused on dismantling the arguments of extremist groups. One minute silence was observed to remember the victims of 7/7.
Ishtiaq Ahmed, president of Minhaj-ul-Quran London said "the ideology used by extremists and terrorists to legitimise terrorism and the targeting of civilians in the name of Islam, has been comprehensively defeated."
Shahid Mursaleen, spokesman of Minhaj-ul-Quran UK said "One of the largest Anti-Terror youth camps will attract 1300 British and European Muslims to defeat radicalism in August 2010. Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri will take the Fatwa on Terrorism to the Grass root level as a tool to defeat terrorism and terrorist ideology."
Tahseen Khalid, president of MYL UK, the youth forum of Minhaj-ul-Quran UK said "the Fatwa on Terrorism has silenced extremists. The comprehensive fatwa has been widely accepted by Muslims who were waiting for someone to refute extremists who had hijacked Islam."
