“Our hearts and prayers are with the families of the victims and the survivors in this difficult hour”, said Shaheen Khateeb, president, IAMC. “This cold-blooded killing of innocent people, appears to be aimed at stoking sectarian tensions in a city known for its cosmopolitan outlook”, added Mr. Khateeb.

IAMC has called upon the Home Ministry to conduct a thorough investigation into the blasts, and ensure that the culprits as well as those that inspired them are exposed and brought to justice.

The US based advocacy group has also requested everyone to refrain from a rush to judgment until the results of the investigation are known, “Several bomb blasts in recent years, led to innocent youth from a specific community being thrown into prison, and still struggling to secure justice, even after the real masterminds confessed,” says the statement released by the IAMC.

Indian American Muslim Council (formerly Indian Muslim Council-USA is the largest advocacy organization of Indian Muslims in the United States with 10 chapters across the nation.
