As the investigation of the terror plots in London and Glasgow unfolds, American Muslims are experiencing the shock and outrage we always do in hearing that people associated with our faith are involved once again in these heinous acts. Each time our sense of disbelief and betrayal reaches a new level.

Their horrific acts are a direct contradiction to the Quranic teachings. A particular verse comes to mind that equates taking the life of one innocent human being is as if you have killed all of mankind.

These suspected criminals should be given due process. If found guilty, they must be brought to justice. These individuals who choose evil are a betrayal of their faith, profession and humanity.
