In Response to Paris Attack, ICN joins ING and its
Affiliates to Affirm Fundamental Values
The Islamic Center of Nashville joins the Islamic Networks Group (ING) and its Affiliates nationwide and fellow Americans in extending their deepest condolences to the families of the victims of the horrific attack at the offices of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris which took the lives of twelve people. No belief, cause, or grievance justifies such senseless violence. We pray that the perpetrators be found and quickly brought to justice. As Muslims, people of other faiths, and leaders across the world condemn this attack, we affirm the following values and principles:
- We affirm and uphold the sanctity of all human life, the taking of which is among the gravest of all sins.
- We affirm the right to freedom of thought, conscience, and speech.
- We affirm the right to security in one’s livelihood, profession, and residence.
- We believe that God created us with all the diversity of race, religion, language, and belief to get to know one another, not to despise or hate one another.
- We believe that Islam is above all a religion of peace and mercy, and that Muslims are obligated to model those traits in their lives and characters and to work for the good of our homeland and society, wherever that might be.
