The World Muslim Communities Council Strongly Condemns Terrorist Attacks in Vienna
The World Muslim Communities Council strongly condemns the terrorist and criminal attacks that took place on the evening of Monday, November 2, 2020, in several locations in the Austrian capital Vienna, which resulted in deaths and injuries.
The Council offers its sincere condolences and sympathy to the families of the victims and the Austrian people, asking Allah for a speedy recovery for the injured.
The Council affirms its sympathy with the innocent victims and their families, stressing that these attacks violate human values, cause confusion in society and target innocent people of all religions without discrimination. Terrorism has no religion and does not differentiate between places of worship or worshipers. These attacks are criminal behavior against the confidence and stability of all humanity.
The World Muslim Communities Council calls for uniting all efforts and initiatives to combat terrorism, eradicate its intellectual roots, prosecute its groups, give priority to wisdom and reason, adhere to social responsibility, confront hate speech and incitement to violence, whatever its source, and respect state constitutions and legal systems regulating public affairs.
The Council also stresses the need to work to consolidate common human values among all components of society, to spread the principles of moderation, tolerance and love, consolidate belonging to the homeland, and respect for the law, dialogue and coexistence with other religions and cultures.
