Media Statement - Muis Statement on London Attacks

MEDIA STATEMENT

6 June 2017

  1. The Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (Muis) and the Singapore Muslim community are saddened by the wave of terrorist attacks across the world in recent months, and in particular the most recent events which occurred in Ramadan, including the attack in London. Muis stands with the grieving families for the loss of their loved ones.

  2. These acts of terror and violence are not only reprehensible – they desecrate the holy month and are totally against the teachings of Islam. Muis has stated time and again that they and the beliefs they are founded upon have no place in any society or civilisation.

  3. For Muslims, Ramadan is a time for introspection, worship and spreading of compassion to community and society. Our own Ramadan campaign in Singapore bears the theme: A Community of Rahmah (blessings, compassion and grace), Rahmah begins with Me.

  4. In the face of the frequency and proximity of these terrorist attacks, Muis would like to urge the community to remain vigilant and to be aware of signs of change in behaviour of family members and friends. If you think that they are coming under extremist influences, you must seek help from credible resources such as the Religious Rehabilitation Group (RRG). By doing so, you care for all your loved ones, and for everyone in the community.
