Faiths unite in rally against terror

Scotland UnitedMore than 2000 people gathered yesterday to deliver the message that Scotland says no to terrorism.

Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon told the mixed race and faith crowd in George Square, Glasgow, Scots had responded “magnificently” to the airport attack last weekend.

Glasgow Central MP Mohammed Sarwar was among the demonstrators. He told the mainly Muslim crowd: “The message from Scotland is loud and clear that we stand united…against the terrorists and criminals who want to kill innocent men, women and children. Whatever colour, faith or background they come from, we condemn them.”
