Methodist Vice-President’s response to attacks on Mosques

The Vice-President of the Methodist Conference, Mr Mike King, has expressed solidarity with the Muslim community in light of reprisal attacks on Islamic buildings following the horrific murder of the British soldier Lee Rigby in Woolwich. 

Mike King, Vice-President of the Methodist Conference, said: “Methodists that I have met throughout the country in recent days are shocked by what happened in Woolwich to Lee Rigby, but also saddened by apparent reprisal attacks on Islamic buildings, or verbal abuse against individuals. With peace and respect at the very heart of the Christian and Muslim faiths, all such attacks cannot be justified in any circumstances. Prayers in churches that I have attended have reflected this in the last few weeks and it is important for Muslims, both in UK and globally, to know that such prayers are being offered in our Methodist churches.”
