Destruction of Golden Mosque - Shameful & Cowardly Act
Feb 23, 2006
PLAINFIELD, IN – The Islamic Society of North America registers its deep shock and dismay over the destruction of the priceless shrine of Imam Mahdi, the Golden Mosque in Samarra.
We are deeply dismayed at the loss of life and the loss of this heritage structure. The loss of this beautiful masjid comes at a time when the people of Iraq were seeking to establish their government.
We appeal to all Muslims to strive to overcome their differences in order to create a peaceful world for themselves and everyone. We appeal to the people of Iraq to bear this loss with fortitude and courage and let the law take its course in apprehending the miscreants responsible for this deplorable and mindless act.
ISNA joins the Muslim world in mourning this loss and condemns those who planned and executed this criminal act.
