[Sir Iqbal Sacranie, t]he head of the Muslim Council of Britain says he wants to take "concrete steps" to make sure atrocities such as the London bombings are never repeated....
"We are all responsible for it in a way", he said, because "very little had been done" to tackle elements in the community carrying messages of hate....
Sir Iqbal said Islamic scholars in the UK are to make a strong statement later at the London Central Mosque.
It would be "so powerful and strong" it would leave no-one in any doubt about the Muslim communities' attitudes to such atrocities, he said.
"That statement is going to re-define the position about what Islam has to say about acts of atrocity, acts of murder and criminality."
