Today we mourn the loss of our Sikh brethren, slain in this senseless act of violence, and their families, whose heartbreak we cannot possibly know. Our hearts go out to the Sikh community in Wisconsin and around the world – we stand with you in solidarity during this sorrowful time.
Acts such as this remind us that prejudice, fear and hate can only lead to violence. Though it is difficult to move beyond this tragedy, our resolve is only strengthened, and we will continue to work towards cultivating harmonious and peaceful coexistence.
We hope that you will join us in sending our thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families during this painful time, and we ask that God guide them through the unspeakable agony of losing a loved one to the cruelty of hate.
Imam Feisal and Daisy Khan
