Welcome to the Islamic Association of Lincoln Website
Press Release: Orlando Attack
The Islamic Association of Lincoln strongly condemns the horrific attack in Orlando, Florida.
Dr Tanweer Ahmed, Chairman and Trustee of Islamic Association of Lincoln, said “We are shocked that so many innocent people have been killed and injured. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who lost loved ones, the LGBT community and the American people. I pray for a swift recovery for the injured.”
There is no religious justification in Islam for shooting innocent people regardless of their identity. I urge all Muslims and non-Muslims or people with no faith to stand together, remain united and don’t let the terrorists divide us and turn us against each other. The IAL will continue to work with other stakeholders to defeat extremism and terrorism.
