Lancashire’s Anglican/Muslim forum has issued a statement condemning the terrorist attacks in Paris.
A spokesman said: “We are shaken by the horrific, atrocious and vicious attacks that have taken place in Paris.
“Our thoughts, feelings and prayers are with the victims’ loved ones.
“We express our solidarity with the families of those affected and with the people of France.
“We pray that whatever we say and do, in particular in the coming days, takes into consideration people’s suffering, emotions and sensibilities.
“And we pray that we avoid words and actions which add fuel to the fire lit by people that wish to divide us.”
