ANDERS BREIVIK AND RIGHTWING EXTREMISM

 

Published: Friday 24th August 2012 12:00

 

Mr. Mohammed Shafiq, Chief Executive of the Ramadhan Foundation comments:

 

“The verdict this morning in the Anders Breivik terrorism trial has been a long time coming.  He was responsible for killing 77 innocent victims and injuring hundreds others and was only given twenty one years, he should never be released.  There are those who think that we should believe in reform and forgiveness, you cannot forgive someone who showed no remorse or compassion to the families of his victims. 

 

My immediate thoughts are with the victims and their families on this sad day and also to the Norwegian people for their steadfast commitment to multiculturalism, human rights and equality.  This proud nation has shown the way to defeat terrorism and extremism is to hold fast onto your values and not be rushed into introducing emergency laws.

 

His evil commitment to fascism and right-wing extremism is what should worry Europe and the world, last week we saw a Czech man arrested who wanted to copy Breivik, a Neo Nazi in Wisconsin who killed Sikhs and here in the UK seventeen people with right wing sympathies have been jailed for terrorist related activity.  The threat from right wing extremism is real, present and a danger to all decent, law abiding citizens and we must not be complacent.

 

The Ramadhan Foundation provided written advice to over 1500 Mosques last year in light of the Oslo killings and we urge Mosques across Europe to continue to be vigilant and report any attacks to the local Police.  All countries have a responsibility not to create an environment where bigotry towards Muslims becomes the norm and where we can live our lives in peaceful coexistence with our fellow citizens.

 

We can only defeat this evil menace by uniting together in peace and for freedom.”

 

END
