Ahmadiyyas condemn Sikh temple shootings

7185046b43adac0be00bdb1e32e8webCHINO, CA: The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA has strongly condemned the senseless shooting of innocent worshippers at the Sikh Temple of Oak Creek, Wisconsin near Milwaukee. “We are deeply grieved by this senseless act of violence against our Sikh brothers,” stated Shamshad Nasir, Missionary of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community chapter in Chino, California, in an interview.
“We must strive to overcome these acts of hate and focus our attention on building a broader mind and developing our relationship with others of different ideologies and backgrounds. This is how peace and understanding for others will be established. The Holy Quran condemns these acts of hatred as well. In Chapter 5 verse 33 it states: “Whosoever killed a person….it shall be as if he had killed all mankind: and whoso saved a life, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind.”
This beautiful teaching of the Holy Quran underlines the value of human life and just how grievous of a sin it is to bring death upon another fellow human being. This brings to light that all acts of terrorism, no matter in whose name they believe they are doing it in, are absolutely forbidden in Islam and these acts of terrorism are, as if we are bringing death to the entire human race. At this time, the Sikh Community is in critical need of the support of the rest of the community, and we are one hundred percent there for them.”
