Islamic Center of Boston, Wayland Condemns Attacks in Sri Lanka
Assalam o Alaikum
The Islamic Center of Boston, Wayland community is extremely saddened to learn of the massacre of Christians in Sri Lanka on this holy day. We condemn in the strongest possible terms the deadly bombing attack on three churches and hotels in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday, that has left more than 200 dead and hundreds injured. May God help all of those affected by this tragedy - ameen.
An attack on one religious institution is an attack on all religious institutions. We stand firmly by our Christian brothers and sisters in Sri Lanka and worldwide, and offer our heartfelt condolences to all affected by this heinous violence.
Muslims respect Jesus, peace be upon him, as a Prophet and messenger of God, and strive to follow his example of compassion and love for humanity. There is no cause, belief, or ideology that could justify the killing and maiming of hundreds of innocent people. We pray that the those responsible for these attacks are apprehended and swiftly bought to justice.
