From London to Leicester and Birmingham to Bradford, Muslims across the U.K. have come together to condemn the un-Islamic actions of ISIS.
Imams Online called for a special day of prayer on September 19th – in response to the kidnapping of humanitarian volunteer Alan Henning in Syria and the recent beheading of David Haines.
Calling on all Muslims to say a prayer for the families of both men, Founder and Chief Editor of Imams Online Shaukat Warraich said: “We also ask the Muslim communities, in mosques and Islamic centres, to make a special prayer for all of the humanitarians working in this region.”
Nadeem Malik, U.K. Director of the Bahu Trust, added: “Muslims around the world feel that the so-called Islamic State, which we are calling the un-Islamic State, doesn’t represent our views.”
As well as receiving coverage in a series of local television news programmes, the campaign was also reflected in newspapers and on websites up and down the country.
