Statement by Sir Iqbal Sacranie, MCB Secretary-General on Police Disclosure

12 Jul 2005

We have received today’s terrible news from the police with anguish, shock and horror. It appears our youth have been involved in last week’s horrific bombings against innocent people.

While the police investigation continues we reiterate our absolute commitment and resolve to helping the police bring to justice all involved in this crime of mass murder. Nothing in Islam can ever justify the evil actions of the bombers. We are determined to work together with all concerned to prevent such an atrocity ever happening again.

We now look to our shared values and common humanity to face the traumas of today and the challenge ahead.
