New Delhi, 04 October 2017: The President of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) Maulana Syed Jalaluddin Umari has condemned the shooting at Las Vegas, USA. The JIH President mourned the death of 58 people in the shooting and said that: ‘’we condemn the cowardly shooting and stand with the people of America in their hour of grief.’’
The Jamaat chief added: ‘’We are alarmed at the rise of cases of domestic terrorism and gun violence in America. There is no place in our world for indiscriminate violence of this magnitude. Our prayers and sympathies are with the victims of this cowardly attack. We hope the American people will address the rising tide of this senseless gun violence with common sense gun laws’’.
Maulana Umari said: “Islam lays great importance to the sanctity of life and teaches love and compassion to fellow human beings. People must reflect on the ill-effects of the contemporary atheist, materialistic culture that glorifies violence and is insensitive to human suffering. It is time for the world to return to Divine Guidance and follow the path shown by God’s prophets that guarantees peace and prosperity both in this world and the Hereafter”.
