MCNJ Condemns the Terrorist Incidents in NYC and Minnesota

We at MCNJ express our shock and sorrow for the terrorist incidents in NYC and Minnesota conducted by misguided individuals.  May God give all victims full and speedy recovery.

Also, we condemn these cowardly acts in strongest terms as unIslamic and inexcusable.  Terrorism above all is murder.  Murder is strictly forbidden in Islam.  We also applaud the efforts of our law enforcement agencies who quickly apprehended the suspect terrorist.

As proud Americans, we stand shoulder to shoulder in peace with our great nation.  We, as law abiding citizens stand for safety and security for all citizens.  We are strongest when we stand together as Americans.

We have very good working relationship with Federal and NJ law enforcement and will continue to ensure that any miscreants are not part of our neighborhood and community
