  1. The terrifying incident that took place at Orlando has aggravated the crisis that the peaceful religion of Islam and peace loving Muslims are facing in this century.Islam does not allow a Muslim to bear any grudge towards any innocent citizen or peoples of a different culture. This was the practice of Prophet Mohammed (May peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) which needs to be studied thoroughly prior to arriving at any antagonistic ideology. This incident was an outright act of oppression. The true interpretation of Islam lies with AMJ Community.Our condolences to the families of the deceased and those affected by this incident.


    Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Philadelphia PA fully support the views expressed by AMC USA National Vice President and strongly condemn the brutal killings. Islam teaches Muslims to obey the law of the country and people in authority. The killer had brought a bad name to Islam, due to his individual crime. Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, who believe in ,”LOVE FOR ALL HATRED FOR NONE” is being persecuted by such fanatic terrorists all over the world.

  5. People like this shooter have nothing to do with Islam, they are misguided and misled by the terrorists outfits for their own evil agenda.
    My heart goes to the bereaved families and the victims and pray to Allah that the injured get better soon.
