Muslims condemn Mumbai terror attack

I imagine you’ve heard by now that terrorist attacks in Mumbai have left at least 80 people dead. If not, The New York Times has a photo gallery and there is a short video from Reuters below.

Fingers are pointed at Muslim extremists, who are tragically locked in war with India’s Hindus that resembles the 500-year Northern Ireland conflict. And Muslims worldwide have been denouncing the attacks, and not parsing their words. This condemnation is from MuslimMatters.org:

Regardless of who was involved, the people who carried these attacks out are animals, with little sense of humanity or morality.

As Muslims, we condemn such senseless carnage against innocent civilians, wherever it may occur. This goes against the fundamental spirit of Islam, which promotes a culture of life and humanity, not bloodshed and violence. And another example of why extremist ideology, whatever that ideology may be, needs to be refuted and condemned.

“Whoever kills a person [unjustly]… it is as though he has killed all mankind. And whoever saves a life, it is as though he had saved all mankind.” (Qur’an, 5:32)

Today, we join all Indians in expressing our outrage and our condemnation of this senseless spilling of innocent blood.

May Allah grant patience to the victims of terrorism, and may He extract full justice against the perpetrators.
