Greetings and Peace be upon all of you!
The Denver Islamic Society strongly condemns the heinous terror attacks that claimed the lives of tens of innocent people and left many more injured. 
These attacks took place recently in Turkey and Mali,  and Brussels, Belgium. 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. 
In peace,

 

DIS Administration

DIS management learned that Colorado Driver’s License Office located at 14391 E. 4th Ave, Aurora, CO 80011 is FORCING Muslim sisters wearing headscarf to show their EARS for the picture.

We contacted Colorado Civil Rights Division (1560 Broadway, Suite 1050 Denver, CO 80202 Phone: 303-894-2997) and we were advised to encourage all of the sisters subjected to this to fill a complaint with their office.

Also, we contacted the Department of Justice and they assured us that they will look into this and that another community (Sikh) reported the same incident and it was address by DoJ Colorado Office.

DIS condemns the horrific attacks in San Bernardino, CA.

The Denver Islamic Society (DIS) condemns with the strongest words the horrific attacks in San Bernardino, CA. The killing of 14 people and injury of another 21 individuals is abhorrent and sickening.

 

We would like to point out that the terrorist group (ISIS) and the actions of these individuals DO NOT represent Islam and Muslims. We denounce ISIS and the actions of these individuals unequivocally .

 

DIS condemns extremism in any group or religion, albeit from the massacre in the African American church in Charleston, S.C. this year to the recent shooting in Colorado Springs, CO to the mass shooting in San Bernardino, CA.

 

We would like to express our condolences to the victims of this terrible event and their loved ones who are suffering great loss and pain. We pray for healing and an end to all these acts of violence.
