UK Muslim leader says attack 'shocking' but 'inevitable'

British foreign policy has 'fed hate', Bukhari tells ANSA

London, May 23 - A Muslim community leader in Britain called the brutal murder of a soldier on a London street "shocking" and "condemnable," but also "inevitable" due to the country's involvement in foreign conflicts like those in Iraq and Afghanistan. Asghar Bukhari, leader of the UK Muslim Public Affairs Committee, told ANSA on Thursday that "these wars feed the hate of some groups", while at the same time, the Islamic community has failed to "instill certain principles in present-day youth". Wednesday's meat-cleaver attack on a member of the UK armed forces, 25-year-old Lee Rigby, happened in broad daylight in front of dozens of passersby.
