ADAMS condemns the horrific terrorist attacks against a Mosque in Nigeria and a Church in Pakistan
The All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) condemns the horrific terrorist attacks at a mosque in northern Nigeria on the border with Cameroon that killed at least 50 people on Tue Dec 12 and at a Church in Quetta, Pakistan that killed at least 9 people on Sun Dec 17. Many more innocent people were also injured by the vicious attacks and the victims were worshippers of both Islam and Christianity.
Our profound sympathy and prayers are with the victims and their families. Terrorists have no faith or conscience. ADAMS joins people of good conscience and of all faiths in standing against such barbaric acts of terror. We continue to pray for peace here at our homeland and in every nation around the world.
The Holy Quran repeatedly teaches us that no one can ever sanction the taking of innocent lives.
