CAIR-MN, Muslim, Somali Community Leaders Condemn Ohio Stabbings

cair mn logo(MINNEAPOLIS, MN, 11/28/2016) - the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) the Minnesota Muslim and Somali community today condemn the Ohio campus stabbings.

"The Minnesota Muslim community condemn this attack and offer our heartfelt condolences to the families and loved ones of all those affected, said CAIR-MN Executive Director Jaylani Hussein. We must not let the act of one individual, no matter what his motive or background, to further divide our community or our nation."

Hussein added, we have faith in our fellow Americans to do the right thing. This is a very dangerous time to be Muslim or perceived to be Muslim in the United States, and this week must be an opportunity for all Americans to show that they can stand together against violence of all forms.

CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
