British Prime Minister David Cameron insists that he condemns all form of terrorism after remaining silent in the aftermath of a series of attacks on mosques in West Midlands last month, reports Musa Naqvi of The Muslim News. He also said the next meeting of extremism taskforce will look into the violence and extremism suffered by Muslims communities. “I condemn these attacks absolutely, but what is more important than condemnation is action,” Cameron said belatedly after being challenged during a visit to Jamia Mosque in Manchester as the month of Ramadhan drew to a close on 8 August.
“I think we can say that this Government has taken action. The Police have acted very robustly in response to these attacks. Also the Government has changed the PREVENT Strategy to make sure that is was to combat all forms of extremism and violence, including extremism and violence against the Muslim communities. I recognise the seriousness of this problem and that’s one of the reasons my extremism taskforce at its next meeting will be looking at the problem of violence against Muslim communities themselves,” he said after facing criticism by the Muslim community for not being strong enough in his response.
