The Connecticut chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Connecticut) yesterday condemned a series outrageous and despicable attacks on churches and hotels in Sri Lanka that reportedly left more than 210 people dead, and over 500 injured.
In a statement, CAIR-Connecticut Executive Director Tark Richard Aouadi said: “As people of good conscience and faith, the board, staff, and members of CAIR CT unequivocally condemn all acts of violence and terror such as those that have occurred in Sri Lanka. The murder of 200 Christian worshipers celebrating Easter Sunday alongside others in Sri Lanka violates the tenets of every faith and every basic standard of human decency and cannot be tolerated.”
“We extend our heart-felt condolences to the victims and the families of today’s outrageous and despicable attack. May God the Lord of all humanity grant respite and patience to the victims and their families and bring the perpetrators of these heinous acts to swift justice.”
