I stand in solidarity with the nation and people around the world in the mourning of the loss of lives in Florida. I want to express my unconditional condemnation of the evil act of killing innocent people, a horrendous act without any justification. I convey my sympathy and prayers for all of those who have suffered or were injured and those family members that have lost their loved ones.
"If anyone killed an innocent person…it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind." Quran (5:32)
