A local spokesperson said, “The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Bermuda strongly condemns this despicable act of violence against peaceful worshippers. Extremism and terrorism have no place in any society and people of all faiths and philosophical traditions should enjoy full freedom to express their beliefs and live in peace without fear of violence and death.

“We are grateful to the government officials, the media and community groups in Bermuda who have spoken out against this atrocity and showed their support to the local Muslim Community. Our thoughts and prayers are with the bereaved families and we pray for the recovery of the injured.”

The local group also noted the comments from the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community His Holiness Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, who strongly condemned the terrorist attack that took place in New Zealand.

Speaking from London, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said, “On behalf of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community worldwide, I express my deepest sympathies and condolences to all those affected by the barbaric terrorist attack that has taken place in Christchurch.

“Such heinous and utterly inhumane attacks must be condemned in the strongest possible terms. It is a grave tragedy that dozens of innocent Muslims have lost their lives whilst joining together for worship. All people, no matter their faith or belief, have the right to worship peacefully.

“We must join together to tackle all forms of racial, ethnic and religious hatred,” he said. “Our heartfelt prayers are with the victims of these attacks and all those who have been affected. May the perpetrators of this evil act be promptly brought to justice.”
