WNYMuslims Speaks to Channel 4 Regarding Kenyan Shooting              

WNYMuslims speaks to Channel 4 news, condemning the horrific Kenyan mall shootings that took place in Nairobi's Westgate Mall. Watch Here!

From our Press Release:

"As an organization we condemn the violent acts of Al Shabab, the militant group which has taken responsibility for the attack. We consider this horrific scene, which has claimed nearly seventy lives and injured hundreds more, un-Islamic and inhumane.

These crimes are the work of extremists who are disconnected from reality, humanity, and do not follow the peaceful tenants of Islam. Islam is a religion that irrefutably condemns and bans the killing, abuse, and oppression of the innocent in any form. With these acts and with the mentality of hate, Al Shabab has torn apart the lives of so many, and has stained and mutilated the image of 'Muslims' everywhere."

Featured Photograph of the Week

This week's photo is from WNYMuslims' very own Director of Outreach Hafsah Afzal. She took this gem of "the waterfall and trees is from Juneau, Alaska from the 2013 IMANA Cruise."

Hafsah's passions include serving the community and making a positive difference in other people's lives. She considers photography a side hobby.

If you have taken a photograph that you think should be featured, please send it in with a description of the shot, and a little bio of yourself to WNYMuslims@WNYMuslims.org
