The MCB’s Secretary General, Dr Shuja Shafi, signs the condolence book in the French Embassy on Friday 9th January 2015, following the horrific attacks in Paris where ten people who worked for the magazine Charlie Hebdo were killed, alongside two police officers.
Dr Shuja Shafi, Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain said: “Nothing justifies the taking of life. Those who have killed in the name of our religion today claim to be avenging the insults made against Prophet Muhammad, upon whom be peace. But nothing is more immoral, offensive and insulting against our beloved Prophet than such a callous act of murder. Our thoughts, prayers and solidarity go to the families of the victims and the people of France.
