LONDON-Bahrain Campaign extended condolences of the Bahraini people, the Bahraini community in the UK, and the members of the Bahrain opposition to the victims families and the British people regarding the terrorist act in Westminster, and thoroughly believes that terrorism here in London and all around the world will never prevail.
Bahrain Campaign was deeply saddened and shocked by the barbaric action by a cowardly individual on the streets of Westminster that took the lives of four innocent and loved victims, and injured many others. The brave police and emergency services valiantly worked to save the lives of victims. Their extraordinary efforts will not be forgotten, and we must commend and thank them for putting their lives on the line for our safety.
Jalal Fairooz, secretary-general of Bahrain Campaign added:
“Our hearts go out to all victims and affected people. It is a deeply horrifying act by an individual devoid of humanity and sense. Terrorism will never stand, and principles of democracy, rule of law, and human rights will overpower the evil values held by terrorists, their toxic ideology, and their despotic ways. It goes without saying, the terrorist that committed the attack does not represent Islam or Muslims, and no heavenly faith approves this, nor any believer would commit such a barbaric crime.
“We must work hard to silence and degrade their voice and powers, and ensure key values of democracy, rule of law, and human rights are propagated around the world to counteract and challenge those that have held to power through terrorising means or finance terrorism whether covertly or overtly, that contribute to the morale of terrorists to carry out acts on the streets of London or in any another city, country, or continent anywhere around the world.
“I conclude by expressing my utmost solidarity with the UK and my thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the Westminster attack.”
