For IMMEDIATE RELEASE (04/17/13)
Boston Marathon Bombing
WNYMuslims was grieved to learn of the bomb blasts that took the lives of three, and left at least 176 injured at the Boston Marathon this Monday April 15, 2013.
WNYMuslims condemns the acts of those responsible for this senseless crime as it goes completely against the basis of Islam, and expects those responsible to be punished to the fullest extent of the law. We must, in times like these, pull together as one, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, age or religion.
As President Barack Obama stated on April 16th in his address of the incident, “this was a heinous and cowardly act.” The President expressed his confidence in the men and women of the FBI and Boston law enforcement, who are currently making every effort to find who committed this terrible crime.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims and families during this difficult time. May God be with them and help them recover from this horrific tragedy.
