The Muslim Association of Britain strongly condemns and deplores the massacre of innocent and peaceful protesters in Sudan by security forces, who launched a deadly raid to clear the Khartoum protest sit-in that has been the focal point in the demonstrators’ months-long struggle for civilian rule.
As Muslims around the world bid farewell to their holiest month, the Sudanese military brutally cleared out the iconic protest site sit-in, killing over 30 protesters. Families in Sudan will now be welcoming Eid not with celebratory preparations, but with funeral arrangements.
We call on the British government to hold the perpetrators to account and consider imposing targeted sanctions on members of Sudan’s Transitional Military Council and those responsible for this horrific massacre.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Sudan who are being murdered in the holiest of times for demanding freedom and dignity, and our condolences to the families who have lost loved ones, and to the country.
