Following the terrible attacks in Paris, I attended a special remembrance service at the Baitul Futuh Mosque in Morden last Friday.

There was a speciEO8A9856al service of prayers and brief remarks, as well as a minute’s silence in memory of those who lost their lives.

This was a good opportunity to show our solidarity both with communities in London and Paris, and send a clear message that such terrorism will only serve to unite us even more.

I was touched to see so many people at this event, from all backgrounds. We stood united in the face of terrorism and in mourning of the victims of those tragic attacks.

I would like to thank Baitul Futuh Mosque for inviting me and for organising this service.
