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.

The Denver Islamic Society (DIS) Joins Muslims Around the World in Shock and Outrage over Paris Attacks
Updated: 9News Post “Denver Islamic Society in shock over Paris” Read more
The Denver Islamic Society is greatly saddened and horrified by the attacks that took place in Paris, France on November 13, 2015.
As Muslims, we are greatly distressed and saddened over the loss of life and brutality that unfolded in Paris. We believe, as stated in the Holy Quran, that whoever kills one life, it is as if they have killed all of humanity, and whoever saves one life, it is as if they have saved all of humanity (Chapter 5: Verse 32). We strongly condemn these politically-motivated extremists who try to justify their horrific crimes in the name of our faith.
Islam condemns all forms of barbarity, murder, and attacks on innocent people. Muslims, scholars and laypersons the world over have, do, and will continue to condemn these and any extremists that use Islam to justify their actions. We confirm that under Islamic teachings, such actions would be strictly prohibited.
Denver Islamic Society stands in solidarity with the people of France and prays for healing, peace, and justice for the victims. We also echo the voices that call for an end to all violence against the innocent in every corner of the world. We pray for an end to all destructive forces that try to separate us from each other and from our humanity.
