• Muslims shocked by Killing at Vaughan Plant Today

    Muslims send sympathies to victims, families & co-workers

    (Tulsa 9/26/14) The Islamic Council of Oklahoma reports that Oklahoma Muslims are shocked, horrified and saddened about the loss of innocent life at Moore’s Vaughan facility today. Sympathies go to the victims as well as the families and co-workers of the women who were attacked. Oklahoma Muslims, like all other Oklahomans, work and attend school with the belief that those are safe places to go.
    Workplace and school killings are tragic but are unfortunately becoming more common in America. Every loss is felt by family, friends and strangers. No religious or political goal is ever achieved by these acts. The Alabama UPS workplace murders last week are just as upsetting.
    Mr. Nolen, the alleged assailant, has been reported by media outlets as a recent convert to Islam. According to Sheryl Siddiqui, Spokesperson for the Islamic Council of Oklahoma, “He was not known to any of the leadership in Oklahoma mosques. We do not have any confirmation of his conversion either in prison or out in the community.”
    Muslims are supporting law enforcement efforts to perform their due diligence and seek justice in this case.
