• Oklahoma Muslims Send Condolences to Boston

    The Islamic Council of Oklahoma’s spokesperson Sheryl Siddiqui states that Muslims across the state are sending their condolences and heartfelt sympathies to the people of Boston, to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings, and to runners everywhere. As Americans, we appreciate the Massachusetts celebration of Patriots Day and are saddened by the affect this tragedy will have on the participants, spectators and general population well into the future. We sincerely thank the Good Samaritans, race organizers and first responders who served the victims so well throughout the crisis. The marathon is a world-class event that has ties to numerous countries. We pray that the runners all get home safely to their families.

    Oklahoma Muslims and mosques speak with one strong voice in condemning the perpetrators and collectively we hope that everyone will cooperate with law enforcement to ascertain the identity of the criminals and bring them to justice. We pray that cooler heads and warmer hearts will prevail.
