    Continued Killing by ISIS

    September 05, 2014

    The Vice President Muslim Council of Sri Lanka Hilmi Ahamad issuing a press release said that the Muslim Council of Sri Lanka vehemently condemns the continued slaughter of innocent civilians, journalists, aid workers and officials by the self proclaimed Islamic State (IS), formerly the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant or the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) The killing on Tuesday of the second American journalist, Steven Sotloff is once again a cheap and repulsive stunt by these brutal terrorists to intimidate the whole world. We call upon the IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, to immediately stop the massacre of innocent human beings in the name of Islam.

    Islam forbids torture, harassment and murder of even combatants. Killing of journalists, aid workers and other innocent civilians have no place in Islam or in the teachings of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAL).

    IS’s attempt to generate cheap publicity by slaughtering fellow humans is a crime that should be condemned by all nations and we call upon the international community including the Muslim world to act decisively against these brutal terrorists who are on a killing spree in the name of Islam which our noble religion forbids.

    The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka also calls upon all Muslims around the word to engage in prayers for the victims. (KH)
