Executive Director Delivers Letter of Condolence to Embassy of India’s Ambassador


WASHINGTON, D.C. (MASNET) Dec. 1, 2008 – MAS Freedom (MASF), as the civic and human rights advocacy entity of the Muslim American Society (MAS), joins with other Muslim, interfaith, peace, human rights and pro-justice organizations throughout the international community in expressing, in the strongest terms, our condemnation of the terrorist bombings in Mumbai, India.


“Acts such as these serve as prime examples of actions MAS Freedom unequivocally abhors and rejects. MAS Freedom categorically condemns any act of violence, if that act harms any innocent civilians or noncombatants. MAS Freedom does not tolerate any exception to this essential premise,” stated MAS Freedom Executive Director, Mahdi Bray.


Bray added, “We are deeply saddened and outraged by these events, and we assure you that the tenets of our faith do not condone these cruel and inhumane actions.”


MAS Freedom also expressed its condolences to the people of India through a letter sent to India’s Ambassador, His Excellency Ronen Sen, on Friday, November 28, 2008 (below).
