The Forum of European Muslim Youth and Student Organisations (FEMYSO) stands with the Christian community against the horrific series of explosions targeting churches holding Easter services and hotels in Sri Lanka. FEMYSO is deeply saddened to witness that once again hatred and extremism is the cause of another atrocity.
FEMYSO strongly condemns such nefarious attacks and all forms of violence and hate crime. We therefore would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the victims’ families and our solidarity to the people of Sri Lanka and the Christian communities around the world. Our thoughts and prayers are with them in this time of grieving.
As we grieve the loss of the innocent, we urge and call on all international and civil society organisations to condemn these atrocious attacks and to strengthen the security of religious institutions** (not sure institutions is the right word but cant think of another one)
We at FEMYSO will continue our efforts on advocating against all forms of hate crimes, racism and discrimination, and push for more effective policies that reflects the seriousness of the matter.
