Law Student Safia Noor, 25, will be Labour’s new candidate for small heath in next city council election.
Safia Noor has apologised for her very controversial post on Facebook claiming there is no proof that ISIS exists.
Khalid Masood mowed down innocent people on 22nd March on Westminster Bridge Killing four and then stabbed a police officer.
On the very same day Ms Noor posted on facebook: “Can people relax and stop fighting on Facebook, sadly people died in Westminster today but people die everyday in Syria Palestine Africa Rohingya Kashmir.. Need I carry on?!! Grow up and stop pointing fingers!”
She posted #AdultsPlayingDumb and #UnityNotWar below the message.
In another message posted the same day only to her followers, Ms Noor said: “Terrorist attack …and even the terrorist died?! Let me guess, he was a Muslim!”
On March 27, she commented on a Guardian article which carried the headline. “Westminster attacker Khalid Masood had interest in Jihad – police”.
Ms Noor posted to her followers: “So someone got stabbed after the attack last week as a result of media and government claiming that SO CALLED ISIS HAD CLAIMED RESPONSIBILITY.
“There is no ISIS and there is no proof.”
She later on liked an article on Facebook by the Independent which was headlined: “Egyptian state media claims 9/11 was carried out by West to justify war on terror.”
When contacted by Media she said “At this point in time it is not appropriate for me to speak about any of this, simply because I’m in the middle of something.”
Ms Noor later emailed a statement to media which read:
“Having read these comments back I accept I should have chosen my words more carefully. I didn’t intend to cause any offence and I apologise to anyone who found those comments offensive or upsetting.
“I completely condemn all terrorist acts.”
A spokesman for Labour’s local regional office was contacted but declined to comment.
But it is understood the party welcomed Ms Noor’s apology.
