The Council on American-Islamic Relations, St. Louis Chapter, joins Americans of every faith and people of conscience across the world in condemning Thursday’s bomb attacks in London. We offer our sincere condolences to the families and friends of those who were killed or injured in these attacks. We also call for swift action in apprehending and punishing the perpetrators. No injustice done to Muslims can justify the massacre of innocent people, and no act of terror will serve the cause of Islam. We repudiate and dissociate ourselves from any group or individual who commits, condones or justifies such brutal and un-Islamic acts, whatever name they give themselves. These acts violate the Islamic principles of preserving the sanctity of life and protecting the safety and security of innocent civilians. We refuse to allow our faith to be held hostage by the criminal actions of a tiny minority acting outside the teachings of the Quran and the teaching of Prophet Muhammad. Kamal Yassin Executive Director, Council on American-Islamic Relations, St. Louis Chapter
