MUSLIM GROUP CONDEMNS BARBARISM
DAESH TARGETING OF CIVILIANS IS UNISLAMIC
Birmingham, United Kingdom: We reserve no emotions or words to unequivocally condemn these horrific crimes in Paris, France. Our thoughts and prayers are with the loved ones of those killed and injured.
Amran Ellahi, Founder and Lead Singer of Aashiq Al Rasul, said “Daesh and its allies with their medieval mindset, savage and despicable attacks on civilians, whether they occur in Paris, Beirut, Baghdad, Kabul, Aleppo or any other place on earth are outrageous and without justification. When we look to the Quran, the context and example of the Prophet Muhammad (saws) we can find neither foundation nor justification for these atrocities.“
Mr. Ellahi added “We call upon our government, i.e. the Government of the United Kingdom, to provide all aid and assistance to the victims of these criminal acts and to facilitate bringing the perpetrators to justice using all available methods. The practice of faith is about life, hope, sharing the good, gratitude & prayer; it’s neither about violence nor killing. Our hearts and prayers are with all those who are killed unjustly, past, present; in Paris and elsewhere.”
Calling upon his compatriots of faith Mr. Ellahi said “Let us adhere and rise to the highest and noblest of ethical conduct in human relations as shown to us by Prophet Muhammad (upon whom be peace). Be ambassadors of peace and share good in your communities.”
