Manchester Attack - LCM Press Release

May 23, 2017

To the families of the victims and the injured on behalf of LCM (Leeds Council of Mosques)

The LCM on behalf of the Mosques in Leeds, West Yorkshire, condemn in the strongest terms the cowardly act perpetrated on the night of 22nd May 2017 at the Manchester Arena. We believe those that have undertaken this atrocity and if proven, the networks working to indoctrinate individuals to kill innocent citizens, should face the full force of the Law and punished in accordance with British anti-terrorism laws.
As representatives of Leeds Mosques, we send our deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of those who have perished in this heinous act and we hope those that were injured, make a full and rapid recovery from their injuries.

In times of adversity, unity and common purpose is the only constructive way forward, we must therefore strive even harder to ensure this tragedy is not exploited by those who want to create division and animosity within our communities but instead speak with one voice and drive out intolerance from our communities irrespective of the religion, race and ethnicity of the culprits.
