Islamic Information Bureau, an Islamic organisation in Malawi has condemned the recent Coptic church attacks  in Alexandria, Egypt describing the incident as sad and  a criminal act which has no any base in Islam.

“The Islamic information Bureau would like to condemn the Attack on the Church in Alexandria, Egypt. It is a criminal act and has no relation to Islam. This is an unacceptable act in Islam as our religion forbids aggression in all its forms, and this bloodshed and unjust slaughtering of innocent people under any circumstances is not approved by the religion,”  Says organisation’s national coordinator in  a statement sent to Malawi Muslim Official Website.

The statement further say that the incident is regreattable as Islam does not ecourage bombimgs or targetting the places of worship of other denominations and the organisation believes that the attack was designed in order to create conflicts among Muslims.

“Islam is not a religion of bombings and does not allow targeting non-Muslim places of worship. What has happened in Egypt is very sad and regrettable act. We believe the incident was designed to incite conflict among Muslims, raise anger against them, lead them away from their priorities, Attack the National Unity of Egypt and the world, and provoke crises and conflict. The incident should not be used as an opportunity to malign Islam and Muslims. What has happened recently in Egypt is a sinful and atrocious act that has nothing to do with Islam,” reads the satement.

Over 25 people were killed during the attack on the News Year’s day on Saturday by the suicide bombing, which occurred shortly after midnight outside a Coptic church in Alexandria, Egypt. The country has about 8 million Christians, the vast majority of whom belong to the Coptic Orthodox Church, which is predominantly Muslim.

  1. Bravo to the co-ordinator for timely condemnation of this barbaric attack.It is unislamic indeed to kill people regardless of religious affiliation of any kind.Islams call for peace and tranquility with all faiths as long as all parties abide to this peace.However the perpetrators could have different agendas against the religion of islam.Islam is peace and will remain peaciful despite negative forces that drug it down.May Allah purify islam and all muslims till yaum l'qiyam.

  2. Simply because an overleous leader backed by a war-mongering media claimed that the incident was done by Muslims doesn't prove that the act was actually done by Muslims. What of the attackers alleged website whose links does not function! If the media had been monitoring the attackers site, how come they did not warn the authorities? What of the authorities high handedness against the 'Islamists' whenever an election is around the corner? Presidential elections? So I beg to differ that it was Muslims!
