"Muslim Community is the Double
Victim," Rabi Hershl Glick
A well known Jewish figure and an Chairman of Jewish Muslim Forum, Rabbi Hershl Glick has said that after 7/7 Muslims in London had become double victims. He said that the Muslim community is a peaceful community and need not feel guilty or ashamed of anything. Addressing a packed out hall of around 150 people the Rabbi said that what the Muslim community needed was to look at the reasons why some of its youths had gone away from the teachings of Abrahmic faith whose teachings were peace and harmony.
The meeting organised by North London Muslim Community Centre (NLMCC) to condemn London blasts and express solidarity with Londoners was supported by various mosques and community organisations in the borough and had multi faith speakers and audience and was addressed by Dr Daud Abdullah (Assisitant Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain), Munaf Zeena (Chair of North London Muslim Community Centre and Council of Indian Muslims UK) Meg Hillier MP (Hackney South), Jules Pipe (Elected Mayor Of Hackney) Shaikh Mufti Yasin (Imam and Islamic Scholar), Rev. Marjorie Brown, Rabbi Hershul Gluck and Chief Superintendent Simon Pountain (Hackney Borough Commander.
Commenting on turnout of the Meeting, NLMCC’s chairman Munaf Zeena, who is also the Chairman of Council of Indian Muslims said, "the turnout we had today was from a very mixed community that represents the diversity of London. We are committed to fight terrorism and not let that get in the way of peaceful community co-existence. We all stand for that and this meeting represents us as a united people of London."
