Federation of Islamic Organisations in Europe: Jo Cox’s Assassination Targets the Values and Principles She Defended
Federation of Islamic Organisations in Europe (FIOE) was shocked and deeply saddened to hear about the assassination of British MP Jo Cox, who was known for her courageous humanitarian stances. Committing this heinous murder of British parliament member reveals to what extent malice and hate speech could infringe social security and democratic life.
Apparently, this crime targets the very values and principles that Jo Cox constantly stood for. Equally, it is a desperate attempt to intimidate society and undermine democracy. Today, MP Jo Cox has become a symbol of human commitment and courageous principled positions.
FIOE extends sincere condolences to Ms Cox’s family and friends, and share thoughts with them all in their devastating loss that cannot drown her role and noble positions.
