Al-Sadeq.org (Imam al-Khoei Cultural Association - Paris, France)

Imam al-Khoei Cultural Association of Paris strongly condemns the tragic terrorist attacks which aimed at destabilizing the country, killing innocents and spreading terror.

The actions of the terrorists do not represent any religion, culture, or belief; On the contrary, it represents the ignorance and extremism that has, throughout history, plagued different places and different eras.  As Shia Mulims, we know very well the disastrous effects of this evil mentality in Iraq and in other countries.  Sadly, today we witnessed it in our beloved France.

The first and foremost victims of this terrorism are the shia muslims, as they were killed for no reason other than their religious convictions. Even the moderate sunni muslims have not been spared from the criminal hands.

We announce from our association (which was and still is at the service of humanity, with its ethnic diversity) that we share your pain and sadness, and mourn with you on these difficult days.  We ask the Lord Allah Almighty to grant patience to the victims' families, as well as grant victory to any action taken against terror and oppression.

By His Name The Most High

Praise be to Allah Lord of the worlds and peace and blessings be upon Mohammad and his Pure Household
