MEDIA STATEMENT

21 APRIL 2019

1. Muis and the Singapore Muslim community strongly condemn the killing of innocent lives in the bombings in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday today. 

2. We are deeply saddened to see another act of terror on places of worship and on peaceful worshippers. Such despicable acts of violence have no place in society, and we stand in solidarity with the affected communities. 

3. Islam is a religion that calls for peace and harmonious relations between communities of different faiths. Islam respects the sanctity of religion and human life and calls for the protection of all worshippers and places of worship.

4. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Sri Lanka in these difficult and trying times.
