Richmond Area Muslims Issue Strong Statement Condemning Violence, Hatred
The following is a statement from the Greater Richmond Muslim organizations condemning this weekend’s terrorist attack in Orlando, spearheaded by the Islamic Center of Virginia.
The entire Muslim Community in the Greater Richmond Region condemns the gruesome and barbaric attack in Orlando and offers their heartfelt condolences to the families and loved ones of all those killed or injured. We join our fellow Americans in repudiating anyone or any group that would claim to justify or excuse such an appalling act of violence and terror.
In this holy month of Ramadan, a month of compassion, worship, generosity and mercy, we pray to God that He hasten the day when all people will live together in understanding, harmony, and peace.
