Release: Barcelona terrorist attack

The Islamic Community in Spain manifests without any doubt our rejection and aberration to the violent and inhuman attack perpetrated today in Barcelona, condemning it without any palliative.

We have always expressed a regret of revulsion at such acts and have rejected all kinds of crime around the world, and in particular those unjustifiably perpetuated in the name of Islam and Muslims.

We echo the pain, which we have suffered in our country, and we want to convey our deepest condolences to the families of the deceased and our desire for a quick recovery of the wounded.

As part of the society in which we live and as Spanish Muslims, we show our full support to our Government and to the State security forces, and all those who are doing a great job in the fight against this nihilistic phenomenon, atrocious and anti Islamic.

The Islamic Community in Spain wants to emphasize that Muslims are also part of the collective fighting, openly and energetically, against terrorism, and that are mostly Muslims who suffer and also suffer the atrocities and barbaries of this will every day, all around the world.

Malik A. Ruiz
President of the Islamic Community of Spain.
