Imam Ibrahim Noonan of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community condemned the London attack and expressed his deepest condolences to all the families.
“There are no words that I can express to explain why these attacks are happening and have happened throughout Europe and, like many, I too am worried about such an incident happening in Ireland.
“I, as an imam, will do everything in my power to help prevent such an attack on our streets and our cities and I will urge all the imams in Ireland to stand up and help me achieve this.”
He also addressed those who would blame Islam for the atrocity.
“Those who accuse Islam as the cause of this, or that the Holy Prophet is somehow responsible for this, this thinking or accusations are unwarranted.”
He said those who make such allegations “are creating fear, hatred, and intolerance in Ireland”.
He said that when he appears on radio, he often gets abused by Irish people, who are not being fair to Islam.
“Islam does not tolerate terrorism at all. The Quran is full of hundreds of verses that talk about being righteous, tolerant, and to never kill another human being.”
