Statement of Condemnation

The Imam Al-Khoei Foundation strongly condemns the mass shooting of innocent civilians yesterday in the city of Orlando. We are profoundly saddened by the loss of 50 lives and our deepest condolences are with the family and friends of the victims, as well as the many others who were injured.

There can be no justification for murder and all those who commit these heinous crimes cannot do so in the name of any faith.

It was widely reported that the perpetrator of yesterday’s attack pledged allegiance to ISIS (Daesh), a vicious terrorist gang that uses hateful interpretations of Islam to justify its brutal acts. As a Muslim organization, we understand as well as any other victims, the pain and suffering that these terrorists inflict on our community, country and world.

Under no circumstances should such tragic events justify bigoted responses peddled by hatemongers and those who seek to divide the United States. It was worth reiterating that terrorism targets people of all faiths, creeds and backgrounds.

We appeal to leaders all around the globe to work hand-in-hand to rid the world of this menace of Daesh.

    Yes, I fully agree for this barbaric killing of innocent people in the name of Islam.
    What this ISIS profess is not Islam at all. Their knowledge is very limited because no where Allah has said about Killing of Innocent people of any Faith in the name of Religion. They only have Muslim Names but are not Muslims, they are Woolf in the garb of a Sheep. Such Evil Organisation should be eradicated by all means.
