“They don’t speak for me and they don’t speak for Bangladesh”

By on July 7, 2016 in News

Hundreds gathered in Mile End Park this morning for Eid to mark the end of Ramadan and pay respect to those lost in the recent attacks in Bangladesh.

Less than a week ago 23 people were killed in a terrorist attack on a popular bakery in Dhaka.

 

Prayers for Bangladesh

“The tragic event last Friday in Bangladesh where a very popular cafe was taken by some terrorists, this is a scale of terrorism in Bangladesh that has never been seen before.,” said Abdal Ullah, a Wapping resident, former local councillor and Founder & Director of British Bangladeshi Power – Inspiration.

“It was on the 27th night of Ramadan and I think there was shock and disbelief that this level of brutality has reached Bangladesh. Now if they, in their twisted minds, think that they are spreading the word of Islam, I will say that they are wrong. They don’t speak for me and they don’t speak for Bangladesh.

Another attack at Sholakia today

Today (Thursday 7 July 2016) three people were killed at a Bangladesh checkpoint  when gunmen carrying bombs tried to attack the country’s biggest gathering at Sholakia, 62 miles northeast of Dhaka to mark the Muslim Eid holiday – an attack directed solely at Muslims.
