Muslims Condemn Senseless Attacks in Paris

Muslims across Scotland are shocked at the senseless acts of wanton violence seen in Paris last night. The Convener of Muslim Council of Scotland Dr Javed Gill said "We condemn in the strongest terms this senseless violence and offer our deepest condolences to the victims". "The targeting of innocent people going about their normal lives is nothing short of despicable".

Muslim Council of Scotland recognises the threat posed by those behind the Paris attacks and will continue to work with all authorities in Scotland to ensure the safety of all communities.
