The recent attacks in New York, New Jersey, and Minnesota have clearly shown that we are all endanger of being victims of terror attacks in any place and at any time. It is very disturbing to hear about these horrible events and we send our wishes of healing and a speedy recovery to the victims. The Denver Islamic Society and Muslims across this nation reject any notion that these attacks or any previous ones are connected to our beliefs or religion. We hold the individual or individuals exclusively accountable for their actions. These individuals do not represent Islam or Muslims, they only represent themselves and will be accountable to God on the Day of Judgement for their actions.
We firmly reject terrorism and extremism from any individual, group, or nation and stand for justice and the sanctity of life taught by the Almighty.
We pray for Peace, Justice and Unity,
- DIS Administration
Greetings and Peace be upon all of you!
The Denver Islamic Society strongly condemns the heinous terror attacks that claimed the lives of some 80 innocent people and left many more injured in an attack in Nice, France. Our Community feels deeply sorry for such violence and tragedies.
We keep all the victims in our prayers as we pray to have a peaceful world, which is full of love and tolerance.
