Imams refuse funeral prayers to ‘indefensible’ terrorists of London

More than 130 imams and Muslim religious leaders have said they will refuse to say funeral prayers for the perpetrators of Saturday’s attack in London, The Guardian reports. They called on others to do the same.

We will not perform the traditional Islamic funeral prayer for the perpetrators and we also urge fellow imams and religious authorities to withdraw such a privilege,” the Muslim leaders said Monday in a statement posted on social media.
