Pupils at Nottingham's only Muslim school made banners condemning terrorist activities on the anniversary of the London bombings.

Around 120 youngsters at the Islamia School in Hyson Green held up the posters while observing yesterday's two-minute silence.

They banners read 'Muslims against terrorists', 'Murderers are not martyrs' and 'Islam means peace'.

The pupils also prayed for the victims of the 7/7 atrocities and sang a nasheed, or Islamic hymn.

Deputy head Sajidah Munir said: "We talked to pupils about how upset and aggrieved everyone was about the bombings.

"We also talked about how some people have this perception that Muslims are terrorists and what we can do about it."

He added: "The children said they would like to make their feelings known by creating their own posters.

"We made a prayer for people who passed away and for people who lost loved ones.

"The majority of Muslims in this country were born here. We feel for people in this country."

Eleven-year-old pupil Aqdas Aslam, from Radford, said: "I felt very sad and upset that people could have done this evil thing.

"The terrorists have hurt and killed many people in my country. It was a crime against humanity."

Meanwhile, three Muslim men from the city travelled to London to attend the tributes in the capital wearing matching T-shirts bearing the slogan 'Beat terrorism'.

They stopped to speak to some of those laying flowers and giving out wrist bands bearing the date of last year's atrocities.

Suhail Butt, an IT worker originally from Nottingham and now living in Manchester, said what they were doing was raising awareness.

He said that whilst they had had some "funny looks" while travelling on the Tube, he and his friends, Kaisar Altaf and Zahid Iqbal, both from Nottingham, thought it was important to show their solidarity with those remembering the attacks.

The trio said that the visit was a repeat of the one they made to the capital two months after the attacks and that they had so far raised 1,500 for the Red Cross and Unicef.

The anniversary of the July 7 bombings, which killed 52 people in the capital, was marked by a two-minute silence at noon.

Adrian Johnson, 37, from Sutton-in-Ashfield, and Stan Brewster, 52, from Swanwick, in Derbyshire, were among the victims of the four blasts.

Actaully the gentlemen who runs this school is an incredibly enlightened man, i have had the pleasure of meeting him persoanlly and am close firends with his son whom i study with at University.

some of his works are available here...

Works of Dr Musharraf Hussian (http://www.karimia.fortnet.co.uk/index.php?option=content&task=view&id=131&Itemid=84)

He was also famously known for going to Iraq to plea with terrorists for the release of british hostage Ken Bigley.

This is jsut a small step to show that normal muslims do exist and we do care and we are voicing our opinions and we are getting louder and soon the meida will not be able to portray us using the handful of libarary media of extremists it has.

As that Pakistani in the British serial spoof, "Mind your Language" goes, one is tempted to say, "Jalli Good"! :biggrin:

I presume the Mussulmans are no longer being Muzzlemans; at least not this enlightened gentleman Mussulman.

I'm very glad you posted this, it's just like everywhere else. The kids have more common sence than we do, I bet it's because kids play together and as long as it's fun who cares.

Kids are great, I just hope no one poisons their minds. After all you're not born a KKK member, terrorist or any other of those idiot groups.

If ou can't keep your mouth shut because of normal human respect for another at least do it for the dead that even these children managed to remember.

Its just a staged drama.. its not as if they actually feel against 3/7.
Its just a show to claim that they actually had some "normal muslims".

Keep a civil tongue in your head.

Answer the issues raised in the post.

To stoop to your level so that you understand, please consult a doctor for worms that maybe tickling you and troubing you at the rectum instead of indicating this social embarrasment on the board.

In case you are very Islamic, try some Unani cure. I am sure the Hamdard Labs of India, which specialise in Unnani (Moslem medicine) will be able to help you.

Let Lunatock be an example for you as to what is real Islam.

again you show your utter disrespect for the dead and the living by continuing to veer off topic trying to flame whilst we remember our own.

After veering offtopic and receiving a scolding he lectures you on maintaining a civil tongue. Afterall it was Ray's filthy mouth that hurled nasties at my mom n pop!

You're the last one to lecture someone on manners.
