Muslims Condemn Terrorism!

Muslims need to unite in condemning the killings of the innocent people. We need to hear louder voices of all the moderate Muslims, so they down the voice of terror. Violence has no place in Islam, and the communities have to root out the terrorists. After the Boston attacks all the Muslims were worried about the back lash. Parents were afraid to send their children to schools, young Muslims were afraid to leave their homes. The question arises that are we vigilant enough to watch for the signs of radicalism in the people we know? Do we say something when we see something?

No mater what the intentions, terrorism is ugly and has no place in society. We at Moderate Muslim Voices condemn the attacks in Boston. We urge the moderate Muslims to step up and join us in condemning the acts of terrorist.

Muslim Burial for Boston Bomber? NO!

Some are raising the question if Boston Bomber; Tamerlan should receive a Muslim burial. No one except the media has declared him a Muslim. His uncle and aunt have both said that he showed interest in Islam but he was raised as a Christian. There has been no verification from FBI to that affect either. Then why raise the question if he should receive a Muslim burial? He was NOT a Muslim! He may have gone on Muslim websites but that does not make him a Muslim. Media has been very irresponsible in declaring him a Muslim.

Mosques are also shying away from giving him a Muslim burial.
Imam Talal Eid of the Islamic Institute of Boston, told Huffington Post.
"I would not be willing to do a funeral for him, this is a person who deliberately killed people."
