Imams refuse funeral prayers to ‘indefensible’ London Bridge attackers.

People lay flowers after a vigil for victims of Saturday’s attack in London Bridge, at Potter’s Field Park in London,

The imams expressed “shock and utter disgust at these cold-blooded murders”, adding: “We will not perform the traditional Islamic funeral prayer over the perpetrators and we also urge fellow imams and religious authorities to withdraw such a privilege.”

More than 130 religious leaders use unusual sanction to express disgust at murders ‘contravening Islam’ and vow to root out extremism.
