MUSLIM COMMUNITY RAISES £7k IN TWO HOURS TO SUPPORT VICTIMS OF WESTMINSTER ATTACK

The campaign, led by the British Muslim community, is to raise money to support the victims of yesterday’s terrorist attack.

A campaign, led by the British Muslim community, to raise money to support the victims of yesterday’s terrorist attack in London has raised over £7k in around two hours.

Muslims United for London, the group behind the effort, saw the rush of donations soon after they set up this fundraising page.

It is understood that the funds collected will be used to support the victims of the attack in Westminster and their families. The death toll currently stands at three and a terrorist, 40 people are thought to be injured too with seven being in critical conditions.

“The British Muslim community stands with the community during these difficult times,” Muslims United for London said in a statement today. “We extend support in raising funds to help with the immediate, short-term needs of the families of Keith Palmer, the other victims and the families of the victims.”

“While no amount of money will bring back lives lost or take away from the pain the victims and their families are going through, we hope to lessen their burden in some way.”

Muddassar Ahmed, who launched the fundraising page, told ITV about the moment he witnessed the attack at work. “I was in a meeting and suddenly my phone started going off,” he said. “People started calling me. We looked out of the window and we saw a scene of horror.”
