THE massacre of 12 people at the offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo last week has been condemned by Halesowen and Sandwell’s Ahmadiyya Muslim community.
Its president Dr Masood Majoka said the gunmen’s attack in Paris last Wednesday as “ruthless” and had nothing to do with the teachings of Islam.
He said: “We condemn the attack on Charlie Hebdo and are deeply shocked by this atrocity that has taken 12 lives and injured scores more.
“We offer our condolences to the family of the victims and those left bereaved.”
He added:”It is a great source of regret that such violent acts and terrorist activities continue to be associated with Islam – despite the fact they have nothing to do with Islam’s true teachings.”
