The leader of the Ahmadiyya Muslims has condemned the Westminster terror attack as dozens of Ahmadiyya women formed a human chain across Westminster Bridge.

Hundreds of representatives from religious, political, charitable and community organisations attended the 14th National Peace Symposium at the Baitul Futuh Mosque in London Road, Morden, on Saturday, March 26, just three days after terrorist Khalid Masood drove his car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before stabbing a policeman to death.

Masood was shot dead by police after killing Police Constable Keith Palmer. Three other people, including a 75-year-old man from Clapham, died from their injuries after being hit by Masood’s car, as well as dozens more being injured during the attack on Wednesday, March 22.

Speaking at the event, the leader of the worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim community, His Holiness Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, said the terrorist attacks carried out in the name of Islam were against its true teachings.

He said: “First of all, I would like to extend my deepest condolences to all of those affected by Wednesday’s terror attack at Westminster.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of London at this tragic time.

“On behalf of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, I wish to make it categorically clear that we condemn all such acts of terrorism and offer our heartfelt sympathies to the victims of this atrocity.”

He added: “No matter what terrorists may claim, under no circumstances are indiscriminate acts or killings ever justified.

"Their barbaric acts are a violation of everything that Islam stands for."

A group of Ahmadiyya Muslim women also showed their opposition to last Wednesday’s attack when they joined other women from around London to make a human chain across Westminster Bridge.

The event, organised by the Woman’s March On London, was held at 4pm on Sunday, March 27.

Fariha Khan, 40, a GP from Surbiton, said: “The feeling of what happened here on Wednesday was really strong.

“We thought of the ordinary people who were here and were mown down, standing here like this, it was very overwhelming.”

Sarah Waseem, 57, from Surrey, said: “When an attack happens in London, it is an attack on me.

“It is an attack on all of us. Islam totally condemns violence of any sort. This is abhorrent to us.”
