On July 15, 2005 BBC News reported, "The city's only Muslim scout group called on children of all faiths and cultures to unite in defiance of terrorism. Group Scout Leader Abdullah Mussa of Birmingham's first official Muslim Scout Group organised an event in Victoria Square in Birmingham city centre to unite all children from schools across the city in peace after the attacks in London. Muslim scouts in Abdullah's group were concerned after the bombings and wanted to unite and show support and solidarity for the people of London and those mourning friends and relatives killed. The children invited other children from across the city to join together as a symbol of peace and solidarity, and to express their condolences to the families of the victims."
