The British Muslim Heritage Centre condemns the use of brutal force by the Minneapolis police that led to the death of George Floyd. This incidence is unconscionable and deeply disturbing by any legal or moral standard in a civilized society. We stand in solidarity with the family of George Floyd and with the people of colour in the USA, UK and around the world against injustice.
Our thoughts and prayers go to George Floyds’ family and friends and all the other people of colour who have died due to racism around the World. May their souls rest in peace and may their families and friends have patience, strength and courage to bear the loss of their irreplaceable loved ones.
We believe that racism including Islamophobia in all its forms and manifestations constitutes the most serious threats to local, national and international peace. We will continue to work with our multi-faith and non-faith partners including our political leaders and the media to ensure that we are united in tackling racism and hate wherever it comes from.
