We have been devastated to hear that at least 310 people lost their lives and hundreds were injured in the Sri Lanka terrorist attacks this Easter. A time where Christians and others where enjoying Easter Sunday with their loved ones at prayers in various churches and hotels in eight locations.
The Board of Trustees and Staff at the British Muslim Heritage Centre express their deepest sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims and to the Government of Sri Lanka. We also wish a speedy and full recovery to those who were injured.
The Chair of BMHC, Nasar Mahmood OBE reiterated:
“Terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to local, national and international peace and understanding. We will continue to work with our multi-faith and non-faith partners to ensure that we are united in tackling hate crimes wherever, whenever and by whomsoever commits them.”
