Worshippers at the East London Mosque are deeply concerned that the decision to allow British air strikes in Syria will inevitably lead to further civilian casualties including innocent men, women and children.

A diplomatic solution is required to bring an end to the on-going civil war in Syria, and the international community should do everything within its power to bring about a peaceful resolution.

We encourage members of our community to donate towards charitable causes that continue to help alleviate the suffering of the Syrian people.
