A London Imam and broadcaster, Ajmal Masroor, said he hoped the attack would not stir up anti-Muslim sentiment.
"If it does it'll be a tragedy because we would have allowed the terrorists and the thugs to win the battle, or the narrative."
The centre added: "The local Muslim community has always enjoyed an excellent relationship with the people from all walks of life regardless of their religion, colour or ethnic background.
"We do not and will never support such evil acts, and strongly suggest that both of these men should be severely punished as criminal and not as so-called 'Muslims' for the crime they have committed, with full force of law."

Leaving the meeting of Cobra, Boris Johnson appeared to indicate that yesterday's attack was being seen as a one-off incident.
"Everything I am hearing leads me to think that Londoners can go about their business in the normal way and we are going to bring the killers to justice."
Witness Graham Wilders said: "The police officers didn't even get a chance to get out their car.
"They just, like, started running towards them, especially the bloke with the machetes.
"They just had to shoot him because he was just hurtling towards them, and then the other one with the handgun, lifted it up and obviously they shot him."
The BBC understands that guidance has been issued to members of the armed forces to "conceal" their uniforms if in public - especially when travelling alone.
A defence source said this was a "common sense" measure while the investigation into yesterday's attack is ongoing. He said it did not amount to a change in policy.
Security at a number of military bases has already been stepped up and members of the services have been told to remain vigilant.
The rector of Woolwich, Reverend Jesse van der Valk, says: "Woolwich is very much a military town and has been for many hundreds of years.
"The barracks just next to us here has been here for 350 years, it's the busiest and biggest military barracks in London, and it's very much part of the town, the soldiers are to be seen round the town every day, they ride their horses, and parade around; we see them all the time, and so they are very much part of the community."

Help for Heroes said it was appalled to hear about the "brutal" murder.
"We are desperately saddened to hear of this sickening attack and offer our thoughts and prayers to his family, colleagues and friends," it added.
More on what Mr Johnson said outside the Cobra meeting.
"It is completely wrong to blame this killing on the religion of Islam but is is also equally wrong to try to draw any link between this murder and British foreign policy of the actions of British forces who are risking their lives abroad for the sake of freedom.
"The fault lies wholly and exclusively in the warped and deluded mindset of the people who did it."
The attack happened near the Royal Artillery Barracks, adjacent to Woolwich Common, the historical home of the Royal Artillery.
Tweets: "The @MayorofLondon Boris Johnson arrives at the COBRA meeting in Whitehall telling reporters it's wrong to blame the Muslim community..."
He adds: "Boris Johnson pays tribute to the people of Woolwich who showed astonishing natural courage in dealing with events & stood up to killers..."
Ms Loyau-Kennett added: "I could see a butcher's knife and an axe - that's what he had - and blood. I thought, what the heck? I thought obviously he was a bit excited and the thing was just to talk to him."
She said she tried to reason with him to focus attention away from other potential victims.
A woman who confronted the men has told ITV Daybreak that she initially thought the victim had been injured in a car crash.
Ingrid Loyau-Kennett, 48, from Cornwall, said: "I went to the guy and when I approached the body there was a lady cradling him. And then (one of the killers), the most excited one of the two, said, 'Don't go too close to the body'."
Last night the members of the English Defence League gathered outside the The Queens Arms pub in Woolwich.
There was a confrontation between the EDL and the police, however there were no arrests.
The Cobra meeting will decide how to respond to the killing - looking at whether it was a lone attack or a wider orchestrated campaign.
So far, he says, the UK's terror alert level has not been raised and the security response has been limited to military barracks, which would lead one to speculate it is believed to have been an isolated act.
It will be a rather cloudy day with occasional sunny intervals. A scattering of showers, perhaps heavy, will spread southwards later. It will feel chilly in the north-westerly winds. Maximum 11C (52F), minimum 6C (43F).
