The Faiths Forum for London helped organise an event on Friday, drawing together religious leaders, the armed forces and politicians, at which the Deputy Prime Minister spoke.  The two co-chairs of the Forum, Leonie Lewis and Canon Guy Wilkinson CBE, also spoke.

Phil Rosenberg, FFL’s Director, has uploaded a transcript of the speeches onto their website and these may be helpful in local conversations.  They spoke for us all in offering condolences to the family and friends of Drummer Lee Rigby and in condemning his brutal murder.  The speakers were:

  • Rt Hon Nick Clegg MP
  • Sadiq Khan MP
  • Lord Tariq Ahmad
  • Captain Afzal Amin
  • Imam Shams Ad Duha
  • Canon Guy Wilkinson CBE
  • Leonie Lewis

Further statements mourning the death of Drummer Lee Rigby and condemning the attack have been issued by the Mosques and Imams National Advisory Board and the Women’s Interfaith Network.  Others are listed in a previous post.
