Last April, the Boston Marathon was interrupted by two bombs that killed three people and injured 264. The perpetrators claimed that the bombings were done to protect Islam from the United States.
Islam condemns the bombing in every way. In fact, the Holy Quran states: “Whosoever killed a person … it shall be as if he killed all mankind.”
The Ahmadiyya Muslim community of Boston will hold a blood drive at Boston City Hall.
