Paris Attacks BMCS Response
Pleases find below a short statement that was put out on Facebook with some prayers
Attacks in Paris. 13th Nov 2015
Everyones hearts are feeling for the people of France at the moment. This is an absolutely disgusting attack on innocent people. No sane human could justify such behaviour. Even in the animal Kingdom animals don't behave this way towards each other. This isn't just an attack on France but an attack on all of us in Europe.
Let's pray that Allah helps the victims and their families at this difficult time. Ameen.
Let's pray that Allah brings these evil people who carried out these attacks to justice swiftly. Ameen.
Let's pray that as a continent we have the courage and resolve to stay united and stand together in the face of such an abhorrent act of evil. Ameen.

In light of the horrific attacks in France please find below a special issue of our newsletter. It includes some safety tips and advice. It also has advice on how to report Islamophobia should you experience any in the wake of the attack in France.
Whilst we expect things to be relatively calm in the UK, unfortunately events like the attack in France inevitably bring with it a backlash from more ignorant members of our society.

As part of Islam Awareness Week that ran from 17th March to 24th March, Bristol Muslim Cultural Societies young volunteers and youth committee from Bristol produced a short film entitled "What Islam Means to Me" to challenge some of the stereotypes around Islam and Muslims.
