Florida Muslims Condemn the Boston Attacks
Islamic leaders offer condolence to the affected families and reject acts of terrorism!
ORLANDO, Fla., April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In the name of God Most Gracious Most Merciful
Florida's Muslim leaders that represent over 100,000 Muslims today issued a joint statement condemning the tragic bombings in Boston and the loss of innocent lives. Events such as this remind us to stand firm in our religious and American principles of pluralism and justice. No political position, no grievance can justify any act of violence or indiscriminate loss of life.
American Muslims are following American laws and the constitution and trying to raise good families and reject these extreme acts of terrorism; these terrorists have no room in our communities.
We are a peace loving community and we extend our hand of friendship and offer assistance to our Law enforcement officials to make sure these terrible incidents never happen again.
"I have personally worked with federal agents and also conducted various programs and training to assist law enforcement over the years "Said Atif Fareed, Chairman of the American Muslim Community Centers. " We are a part of the American society and we will do everything in our power to make sure that our country is protected" We reject acts of terrorism in any shape or form and pray to Allah God Almighty to protect us from evil and help us become a stronger nation safe from all evil and acts of violence."
We want to congratulate the FBI, law enforcement and first responders who showed true compassion, courage and strength in the face of a crisis, and we are grateful for their hard work.
