WLIC Message of Condolence to Alice Gross Family

On behalf of the Muslim community the West London Islamic Centre (Ealing Mosque), its staff and congregation would like to express their deep sadness and condolences to the parents of Alice Gross, on the news of her passing.

During Friday prayers on the 3rd of October, the Imams reminded the congregation that a daughter and a sister had been lost by our neighbours, that we share this grief and should assist in whatever way we can, even if through remembrance.

Having arranged flowers for the impromptu memorial at Hanwell Clock Tower, the chair of WLIC Mr Tariq Usmani said, 'With beautiful, fluttering yellow ribbons adorning trees, railings and cars throughout the borough in her remembrance, and as members of our local Ealing community and family, we have all felt a part of the anguish and sorrow this disappearance and the taking of such a young, innocent and precious life has caused. We join our friends and colleagues in faith to pray for Alice, may her family be granted much comfort and patience at this difficult time and we remain at their service.'
