16 Dec Muslim Youth Group Condemns Attack on Children
Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association categorically condemns the terrorist attack on a children’s school
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA), an auxiliary of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, categorically condemns the brutal and viscous attack on Peshawar Government schools in Peshawar, Pakistan, which has reportedly taken 150 innocent lives.
The AMYA has a long track record of promoting education for all boys and girls, and this attack on innocent youth seeking education, and their teachers, is heart wrenching and inexcusable.
“We condemn the senseless murder of these innocent children in Peshawar and express our heartfelt condolences to the families,” said Dr. Bilal Rana, President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association. “In a world of so much good, it is heart wrenching to see such evil. May justice be swift.”
As a response, the AMYA will launch a letter writing campaign to condemn this act. Children and youth of the AMYA refuse to remain silent and will raise their voice for their fellow youth and their right to an education and safety.
