More Muslims should have shown support

Published 04/08/2016

Yes, it was very good to see Muslims attending church in support of the murdered French priest, but before he gets too carried away perhaps Henry McDonald (Comment, August 2) should reflect that it was Ahmadiyyah Muslims who did that - not all shades of Islam.

Ahmadiyyahs are considered a heretical sect by most other Muslims and are themselves persecuted, so they understand what is happening to Christians.

What a pity other Muslims did not join them in their admirable stance.
