This letter was originally published in the Irish Times on Tuesday, June 14, 2016
Sir, – The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Ireland categorically condemns the horrific attack in Orlando.
This is a tragic loss of human life. The Quran teaches us to save lives, not take them away. Reverence for all human life is the essence of Islamic teaching. This is a time for prayers and efforts to stop such senseless violence in the world.
We pray for the speedy recovery of the injured and offer our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims. – Yours, etc,
