The Muslim Council of Britain has released a statement welcoming the sentencing of Pavlo Lapshyn, who has been sentenced to life in prison for the murder of a Birmingham pensioner and for terror offences.
But the council warned of the importance of challenging anti-Muslim hatred.
The council says: "There are many lessons to be drawn from this case: the response of the authorities, and our collective unwillingness to treat anti-Muslim hatred seriously. Lapshyn's terrorist activities should not be seen on isolation.
"There are some who will view his activities as those of a lone wolf. But in a summer that saw an unprecedented rise in attacks on Islamic institutions, it is important for all of us to challenge anti-Muslim hatred, just as we challenge those who wrongly use Islam to carry out acts of violence."
Ukrainian Pavlo Lapshyn has pleaded guilty to the murder of Birmingham pensioner, Mohammed Saleem, and plotting explosions near mosques.
Police have released images showing Ukrainian student Pavlo Lapshyn preparing for and carrying out attacks in the Midlands.
