About 52 people were killed and hundreds more wounded in a series of bomb attacks on London transport systemion July 7, 2005.
The Chief Executive of the UK-based Ramadhan Foundation has called on UK politicians to agree to a public inquiry into the terrorist acts of July 7th, 2005.

"As the inquests into the victims of the 7/7 terrorist attacks begins, the Ramadhan Foundation once again calls for politicians to agree to a full public inquiry into the evil terrorism that struck London," the foundation's CEO, Mohammed Shafiq said.

"We urge political parties to agree to a full public inquiry after the general election and urge the British people to lobby their candidates in this election, the victims and their families deserve better."

He also condemned a legal decision not to award the families of victims any legal assistance.

"We condemn the decision not to award the victim's families legal aid, this decision beggars belief, the corrupt MPs get legal aid but these brave families are refused, we ask the Ministry of Justice to have some compassion," Shafiq added.

The foundation said that it has learnt from the inquest that the Metropolitan Police had reacted slowly to the attacks and maybe the attacks could have been avoided if the security forces had reacted in a timely manner.

As a non-for-profit organization, the Ramadhan Foundation was established in Greater Manchester after the suicide bomb attacks on London's public transport system on July 7, 2005. The main goal of the foundation is to provide a more positive image of Islam in Britain.

The foundation's main motto is "working for peaceful coexistence and dialogue for all communities."

About 52 people were killed and hundreds more wounded in a series of bomb attacks on London transport system on July 7, 2005.
