  • Reflections from our Chair in light of the recent attack at Finsbury Park Mosque:

    When ordinary people, going about the peaceful business of prayer in the quiet hours of the night, become the target of hatred and violence, we know that here is something very wrong, very broken.
    From Bristol Multi Faith Forum, first, we send condolences to those who were hurt or bereaved in the attack on people as they left prayers at Finsbury Park Mosque. But also, send the assurance of solidarity with the Muslim community in Finsbury Park who have responded to the pain inflicted on them with calm dignity and a determination to see justice done.
    It was utterly appalling to hear news of this attack. Even more so that this attacker seems to have acted alone. It exposes a deep undercurrent in our society, a brokenness, that emerges as hate and violence. And it damages us all.
    The profoundly important task of religion, of all religions, is to teach people how to live well, to be peaceful, respectful and to take responsibility for shaping the society we live in. ‘Love your neighbour’ … is a common teaching in all faith communities. Our society, our neighbourhoods and the people of our mixed and multi-cultural country need to hear this simple message from all faith communities at this time.
    ‘Love your neighbour’ …. all of our neighbours, whoever they are. It is the only way we’ll bring the healing that can change the way we live. As faith communities, we must never give up on this message and this way of life.

  • Statement from the Inter Faith Network UK on the Manchester attack

    Manchester Arena Attack Statement from the Co-Chairs of the Inter Faith Network for the UK and Moderators of the IFN Faith Communities Forum

    Our thoughts and prayers are with those who lost their lives or were injured in last night’s terrorist murders at the Manchester Arena, as they are with their families, all others affected and those responding with assistance.

    We deplore and condemn this wanton, brutal and cowardly taking of the lives of young and old.

    Let us stand together to oppose terrorism and the ideologies that promote it.

    Let us also uphold and strengthen the unity of our society and work to ensure that it is a positive and harmonious one where all children and young people can grow up safely and without fear.

    It is vital that we all – of every age and background – work to build bridges and positive relationships and to enable difficult issues to be addressed and worked on – always seeking to avoid the use of violence to resolve issues.

    We know that each time a terrorist attack occurs, groups within society become the target of abuse or even attack because of terrorist actions which claim, or are perceived by some, as having a link to them. We must stand, likewise, against this. An attack on one is an attack on all. We remember at this time, in this context, particularly the many in the Greater Manchester area working for good relations.

  • Westminster attacks – Statement from the Co-Chairs of the Inter Faith Network for the UK and Moderators of the IFN Faith Communities Forum

    The attack at Westminster on police and members of the public exemplified the cowardly and destructive nature of the actions of terrorists. We hold in our prayers all whose lives have been lost or forever changed through the murderous acts of its perpetrator.

    Terrorism is profoundly at odds with the values of our faith traditions and of the values at the heart of British society. We deplore and condemn it.

    Attacks of this kind are designed to disrupt our society and to undermine the relationships within it. Let us resist this at all costs and stand together in unity.

    Let us also watch out for the wellbeing of any groups who may be targeted because of terrorist actions which claim, or are perceived by some, as having a link to them. There is no place for prejudice and hatred of that kind and where it is found, let us redouble efforts to combat it.

    The Co-Chairs of the Inter Faith Network for the UK and Moderators of the IFN Faith Communities Forum
