“I have forgiven him.”
Figen Murray is the mother of Martyn Hett, 29, a PR worker who was killed in the Manchester Arena bomb attacks in May 2017. 22 people were killed and 120 injured at the when Salman Abedi, 22, carried out a suicide bomb attack at the Ariane Grande concert.
We ask her what she would say to Salman Abedi if he was alive, why she rejects being labelled a victim, being trolled on the internet after she publicly forgave the attacker and her response to those who questioned why she was not grieving enough.
Figen hopes that by coming together and sharing solutions we have less to fear when tackling extremism. She wants to remember her son as an “ambassador for positivity.”
