The Independent: Woolwich murder aftermath: Theresa May praises British-based Islamic group

Home Secretary Theresa May has condemned “all forms of extremism” as she praised a British-based Islamic group for its commitment to peaceful co-existence and charitable works.

Mrs May said there had been an increase in attacks directed against Muslim communities since the “horrendous” murder of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich last month.

“We have seen generally since Drummer Rigby’s murder an increase in attacks directed towards Muslim communities of all kinds, “she said.

“I am absolutely committed to tackling extremism in whatever form it takes, it is utterly unacceptable to threaten and intimidate anyone because of their religious beliefs or because they belong to a particular ethnic group.”
