ISBR Condemns the Mass Shooting in Orlando

ISBR joins a broad spectrum of more than 80 Muslim organizations in New Jersey listed below to express our profound shock, sorrow, and categorically condemn the murder of 50 innocent people and injuring of another 53 victims in Orlando, Florida.  We wish to offer our heartfelt condolences for the victims and their families whose loved ones have been taken so tragically. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the deceased and the injured.

This individual perpetrator of such a horrendous crime does not represent Islam or Muslims in any sense. The Islam we know and practice calls for peace, mercy, love, tolerance and helping others.


As the Qur’an states, “Whoever kills a person, it is as though he has killed all mankind. And whoever saves a life, it is as though he had saved all mankind.” (Qur’an 5:32)

Hate, bigotry and violence are our common enemy and we reject the hate and anger that leads to this kind of acts of violence. We as American Muslims condemn this worst act of mass shooting in U.S. history in the strongest possible terms

As Americans, we reiterate our commitment to peace, safety, and security of our nation, as well as our solidarity with fellow Americans. We pray for the safety and security of all Americans.

ISBR CONDEMNS TERRORIST ATTACKS

The Islamic Society of Basking Ridge (ISBR) condemns unequivocally and in the strongest possible terms the barbaric terrorist attacks on innocent civilians in Paris and in Beirut. 

Islam is against terrorism and does not condone or provide any justification, whatsoever, for such despicable acts. We stand in solidarity with the people of France and Lebanon and express our deepest sympathy with families of those who were killed and pray for the recovery of those injured in these horrific attacks.

The perpetrators and planners of these crimes against humanity should be brought to justice.
