Nation’s oldest Muslim youth group condemns the shooting, offers prayers to victims
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA), the boys and young men’s association of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, strongly condemns today’s shootings in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Our condolences and prayers go out to the victims and their families, and our prayer is for peace and justice to be reinstated.
“As we complete a month focused on fasting, reflection and service to our fellow countryman, I am very saddened to hear about this vicious attack and the loss of innocent life,” said Dr. Bilal Rana, National President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association. “I pray that God provides them comfort and protects us all from such violence. Our thanks goes to the officers who quickly brought the shooting to an end.”
AMYA works with young men to ensure they always protect and serve the country of their residence. As such, AMYA condemns any such act, no matter how the suspect seeks to justify it.
