A delegation of British Muslims led by the Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain Farooq Murad will pay their respects to the victims of the horrific bombings that took place in London on 7 July 2005.
Leaders, activists and charity workers will tomorrow offer their condolences to the families affected by laying a wreath at the Memorial, erected to remember the victims of the atrocity.
In his earlier remarks, Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain Farooq Murad, said: `On this poignant anniversary, we extend our deepest condolences to the victims, the survivors and their families. Attacks on innocents have no justification in Islam. The Muslim Council of Britain rejects in the strongest terms the agenda of hatred and division that led 52 people to lose their lives and hundreds to be injured. We also recognise that our community must remain vigilant and steadfast against those who commit such acts in the name of Islam and thus pervert our faith for their own ends.'
He added: `Those who died on July 7th 2005 represented every aspect of our society, rich and poor, black and white, people of all faiths and none. For their sake, and for our own, as a nation, we must make sure that as we combat extremism on all sides, we do not damage the open, liberal society for which we are all fighting.'
The visit will take place at the 7/7 Memorial Site in Hyde Park, London at 14.00hrs
