Muhammed Butt urges mutual respect and support after Woolwich

Muhammed Butt, leader of  Brent Council has issued the following statement after yesterday's killing in Woolwich:
On behalf of Brent Council and Brent residents I would like to express the dismay felt by all at the brutal murder that took place yesterday in Woolwich.

As a Muslim I know that there is no basis in Islam for this kind of barbaric action and my thoughts and prayers, as I know yours are as well, are with the family and friends of the young soldier who died yesterday.
Here in Brent we have strong communities that come together every day to live and work, and I urge all of us to continue to respect and support each other during this time of unease.

Why all the British Muslims suddenly apologizing for the killing in Woolwich, what are they apologizing for? It was a Terrorist act committed by 2 evils, what Muslims/Islam has got to do with it.

Cllr Butt must also condemn electronic and print Media who identify Terrorists/Criminals with their religion.
