Muslim Council of Wales: Paris attacks 'an affront to humanity'

The Muslim Council of Wales has issued a statement following Friday night's terrorist attacks in Paris.

At least 127 people have died with hundreds more injured.

The Muslim Council described the attacks as 'an affront to humanity'.

The most recent attacks in Paris are an affront to humanity. We mourn the deaths and offer our thoughts and prayers to the families who have lost their loved ones.

The deaths in Paris follow terror attacks in Beirut and Baghdad.

This attack is being claimed by the group calling themselves 'Islamic State', but there is nothing Islamic about such people and their actions are evil.

Muslims globally, and here in Wales, reject the so called Islamic States' political aspirations in Syria and Iraq, and we reject their attempt to justify their violence through religion.

The Muslim Council of Wales extends its hand of friendship to all those in France who are suffering. Paris, Beirut and Baghdad will be in our prayers.

– Saleem Kidwai, Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Wales


Planned reception for Welsh football team postponed after Paris attacks

A reception with the First Minister and the Welsh Football team, which was planned for today, has been postponed as a mark of respect for those who lost their lives and were injured in the Paris attacks.

In a joint statement, the FAW and the Welsh Government said they stand by the people of France 'as they come to terms with last night's terrible events.'

Today's reception was scheduled to recognise the Welsh team's success in reaching the Euro 2016 finals in France next year.

Hundreds of members of the Welsh Indian community travelled to London for the visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Modi's three-day visit culminated in a rally and firework display at Wembley Stadium, where a reception of 60,000 supporters was expected to attend.

But his visit has been seen as controversial by some.
