Tucson's Muslim Community Offers Condolences

Posted By on Mon, Jan 10, 2011 at 7:15 PM

The Islamic Center of Tucson sent out this release yesterday to offer condolences yesterday from Tucson's Muslim community:

The Muslim Community of Tucson is saddened by the heinous act of violence in Tucson. The horrific tragedy has left six people dead and fourteen injured including honorable congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Congresswoman Giffords has been a great friend of the Arizona Muslim community and has helped many families through their hardships.

On behalf of the Muslim community in Tucson, the Islamic Center of Tucson offers our sincere condolences to all the friends, colleagues and family members of all those killed or injured in this brutal and senseless attack. We pray for a full and speedy recovery for all those injured.
