“I wish to make it absolutely clear, so there can be no doubt, I do not condone his actions nor support the beliefs he held that led to him committing this atrocity,” said Masood’s mother Janet Ajao, the BBC reports.
Ajao also said she had “shed many tears” for the victims, and thanked her community and family for supporting her during this difficult time.
Masood drove a car into pedestrians on the Westminster Bridge, before fatally stabbing a police officer, who shot him before he could enter Parliament.
Five people died in the attack, including Masood and police officer Keith Palmer.
