Imams Condemn Terrorist Attack At Boston Marathon

(Royal Oak, MI, 04/17/13) – On behalf of the Imams Council of the Michigan Muslim Community Council (MMCC), we offer our condolences to the family of victims who lost their lives in the unfortunate tragedy in Boston on Monday, April 15, 2013. We express our sadness and sorrow for the loss of our fellow innocent citizens. Our prayers and thoughts are with their families and with those who were injured and the people of Boston. We condemn in the strongest terms such acts of terrorism that take the lives of innocent people. This evil act is detested by all faiths and all people. We turn to God for solace and help.
The perpetrators (extremists) with their perverted ideologies will not succeed in dividing our nation. As Americans, we stand in solidarity with all communities and men of conscience undivided against all acts of terrorism and ideologies that promote such heinous acts.
May God almighty help heal the wounds of the injured and grant patience to the families who lost their loved ones and fill the hearts of Bostonians and the American people with peace.
