Raindrop Foundation Strongly Condemn Terror Attacks In Orlando

unnamedOn behalf of Raindrop Foundation, we strongly condemn the barbaric act of violence, hate and brutal attack. The violence attack reveals nothing but clear blindness and intent to cause conflict and sow the seeds of hate and mistrust in this country. It is acts like this that should make us more alert and mindful of the existence of dangerous minds out there that could go to the worse and lowest behavior. 
Islam equates the killing one innocent person to killing humanity, and prescribes eternal hell for such an action. 
 
If any Muslims are joined to or associated with terrorism and anarchy, it is because they do not understand Islam correctly and because the existing realities in their countries to do not allow them to acquire a correct understanding. But the roots of these causes can be traced only to cultural, economic, and other related reasons’ not to Islam. In light all of these whatever suspect did is related to his disconnected, paranoid, aloof, belligerent and schizoid  behaviors not to his religion.  The attacker does not represent any religion or faith but only a blind hate for anyone who is different from them. He wants to create fear and instability in a very tolerant, harmonious and peaceful country like USA. 
 
We should stand together, all saying that this behavior is intolerable in our community, and does not represent the inclusive community that we strive to make possible in US. At this tragic time, we strongly reiterate our condemnation of all forms of terror regardless of its perpetrators or their stated purposes and we extend our condolences and prayers to the families and friends of the victims.
