Condolences to our brothers and sisters in Sri Lanka

The Islamic Women’s Council of New Zealands sends its condolences to Sri Lankans in the wake of the horrific bombings that have taken the lives of so many innocent Christian worshippers and those in tourist hotels, as well as police officers killed in the line of duty. We condemn the attack in the strongest terms, and it saddens us that violence continues to be a tool used by those wishing to spread hate and cause harm.

We stand in solidarity with the people of Sri Lanka at this difficult time.
