My prayers go out to all those affected by the tragic hostage crisis in Australia on Monday (“Sydney hostage crisis ends in gunfire; 3 dead,” Dec. 16). As a member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) USA, I strongly condemn such acts.
Such acts against peace and humanity have no place in the fold of Islam. Because of this, the AMYA has begun a nationwide “Stop the CrISIS” initiative that aims to educate and inform people about the true principles of Islam. Join us as we speak up against ISIS and other fundamentalists who terrorize in the name of religion
