(WASHINGTON, D.C., 12/25/11) — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today condemned bomb attacks on churches in Nigeria that left at least 35 people dead and many more injured.
In a statement, CAIR said:
“We condemn the unconscionable and inexcusable attacks on Nigerian churches and offer sincere condolences to the loved ones of those killed or injured.
“Only a strong demonstration of interfaith unity will show those behind the attacks that they will never achieve their goal of dividing society along religious lines.”
CAIR is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
