The US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), a coalition of several leading national and local Muslim organizations and institutions, strongly condemns the terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka and stands with the families of the victims during this difficult time.

The cowardly act targeting worshipers during the Easter Christian Holiday is reprehensible and disgraceful. USCMO stands united against terrorism and all forms of violence. The increasing number of attacks against places of worship (synagogues, churches, and mosques) in recent years is an alarming trend that urges all of us to stand united against hate and bigotry. “Any act of terrorism and violence against any group is an act of terrorism and violence against all of humanity,” Oussama Jammal, Secretary General of USCMO said.

USCMO offers its prayers and sincere condolences to the families of the victims and wishes a speedy recovery for those who were injured. USCMO calls on the Sri Lankan authorities to ensure that those responsible for this heinous act are brought to justice.
