This is the message that EML President, sent to the Mayor of Greater Manchester.
To Mayor of Greater Manchester Dr. Mr. Andy Burnham,
I want to convey the great sadness and horror we felt as news began to emerge late last night about the terror attack on the Manchester Arena in your great city.The appalling news, including a death toll of 22 and around 60 injured, has yet to yield the identity of the person(s) responsible but please know this, we are united in grief and would like to send a message if solidarity towards you and your people.Whoever committed this act can only have been fuelled by a hatred which has no place in our Faith and this act will have certainly appalled Muslims across Europe and the wider world.Parts of Europe are still trying to come to terms with terror attacks in recent years but we are confident the enduring spirit of human nature will triumph over the sort of hate and fear these acts of terror are designed to spread.This is just a short message of solidarity from the European Muslim League and if there is anything you feel we can do or say to alleviate the pain of the people of Manchester please do not hesitate to contact us at EML. We have representatives throughout Europe, including the UK.
Ambassador Alfredo Maiolese, EML President
