Following the brutal attack and murder upon a British soldier in Woolwich on 22/5/2013, the Mosques and Imams National Advisory Board (MINAB) joined other  organisations in its condemnation of the heinous and barbaric attack. The MINAB should like to remind one and all that violence has no place in Islam and that there are evil people in every faith just as there are mentally deranged people in all races and cultures. We feel deeply sorry for the family of thevictim of this horrific crime.

As the national faith related organization, MINAB would like to re-state its commitment to community cohesion and co-operation in our multifaith and multicultural communities. To this end MINAB is asking all its membership to act in unison to defeat through peaceful means those who threaten harmony in our society.
