American Muslims condemn the acts of Abdul Razak Ali Artan, the attacker at the Ohio State University on Tuesday, November 29, 2016.

Washington, D.C., November 30, 2016 – The American Muslim Institution condemns the evil attempt of Artan to kill innocent students at Ohio State University. Thank God no one was seriously hurt, and we thank Alan Horujkothe brave Police Officer for stopping the attacker dead in his tracks.

The attacker was identified as Abdul Razak Ali Artan, a green card holder from Somalia. He was purportedly taking revenge for the deaths of his fellow religionists elsewhere in the world.

No American Muslim and no sane Muslim in the world would ever authorize this loony or anyone to kill a fellow human. Committing suicide or killing a human being is a grave sin in Islam.

It is not a Muslim thing to terrorize or kill other people, those who terrorize, act on their own or in cahoots with a few like them.  Our common enemy is extremism and not religion, and we need to direct our energies to contain it.

AMI is committed to be a proactive voice for American Muslims, and we are committed to finding effective long term solutions.
