The Islamic Society of Augusta joins other Muslim organizations in condemning a series of attacks on churches and hotels in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday that reportedly left more than 300 dead and more than 450 injured.
These savage attacks on Christian worshippers celebrating Easter Sunday and others in Sri Lanka are outrageous and despicable.
The Islamic Society of Augusta stands with our fellow citizens of all faiths in condemning such acts of violence wherever they take place, whomever they target, and whoever are the perpetrators. We join people around the world in saying, “Pray for Sri Lanka.” The Islamic Society of Augusta believes that we can work together to combat hatred through building bridges between faith communities and by promoting interfaith dialogue. ISA welcomes visits to our “Islamic Community Center of Augusta” by individuals and is pleased to arrange visits to or by other faith groups to increase mutual understanding of our shared values.
