His Holiness Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS strongly condemns the cowardly, inhuman, and brutal attacks on a Sufi shrine in Sehwan, near Hyderabad, Sind in Pakistan, reported to have killed 88 and wounded more than 300 people.
Syedna Fakhruddin categorically denounces all of the elements who took part in engineering this attack, and all similar attacks.
Syedna Fakhruddin states that these acts in the name of “Islam” are abhorrent and contradictory to the true philosophy of our faith. Islam teaches compassion and understanding towards all faiths and peoples who are part of our human family. The Prophet Mohammed said: “all people are the children of Allah, and the most beloved to Allah are those who benefit his children the most.”
Syedna Fakhruddin prays that may all people of good-will and understanding come together to defeat such forces who undertake their criminal acts in any guise, be it religious, racial, or political. Syedna prays for the victims of this attack and their families for sabar. Syedna Fakhruddin prays that may all people of the sub-continent live in peace and harmony.
