Britain: Survivors of terror attacks warn politicians against spreading anti-Muslim hatred

Defeating Islamism and extremism a ‘national priority’ but major UK politicians have linked Islam with extremism
Dawn Staff Reporter + Dawn TV Report
LONDON: A group of more than 50 survivors of terror attacks in Britain have signed an open letter warning politicians against labeling British Muslims as extremists. Defeating Islamism and extremism should be a ‘national priority’. But they are saddened that major political figures in Britain have conflated Islam with extremism. The letter against anti-Muslim hate was written by Survivors Against Terror, a network of British people living in the UK and abroad. The network includes people who have been affected by terrorism. Signatories include Rebecca Rigby, widow of Lee Rigby, whose husband was stabbed to death in London in 2013, as well as Paul There is also Price, whose colleague Elaine McIver was killed in the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing. The letter reads: ‘The single most important thing we can do to defeat this (extremist) threat is to Extremists and terrorists are to be isolated from the majority of British Muslims who condemn such violence.’
