On November 16th, we woke up on the sad news of the killing of a Hoosier hero, Abdulrahman Kassig, in Syria. Mr. Kassig devoted the last few years of his life helping thediseased and the wounded, and for that we will always think of him as a hero. We, at Al Huda Foundation, unequivocally condemn his killing and the killing of any innocent person. Our message as a Muslim community has and will always be a message of peace and love and not a message for torture, hate or killing of the innocent. We have prayed for his freedom on a regular basis and begged his captors to release him on many occasions.
His captors and their actions do not represent Islam and we, as a Muslim community in Fishers, share the pain that the Kassig family is going through. Our thoughts and prayers are with Paula and Ed and their family.
