The Prime Minister has said it is “wrong” to describe the terror attack on Westminster Bridge and Parliament on Wednesday as “Islamic terrorism”.
Following her statement in the House of Commons on Thursday morning Theresa May was asked by Conservative MP Michael Tomlinson whether she agreed that the term was inappropriate.
He asked her: “It is reported that what happened yesterday was an act of ‘Islamic terror’.
“Will the Prime Minister agree with me that what happened was not Islamic, just as the murder of Airey Neave was not Christian, and that in fact both are perversions of religion?”
Ms May replied that she believed it was not right to use the term, suggesting that such ideology was “perversion”. Source
