The Peace Islands Institute condemns the horrifying shootings of Imam Maulama Akonjee and Thara Uddin from the Al Furkan Jame Mosque in Queens on August 13, 2016. As an institution that strives to promote peace and understanding among different faiths and cultures, it is incredibly saddening for us to witness acts of violence that work to undermine our core mission.

During times like these, it is more important than ever to stand in solidarity against violence or hate, and as Peace Islands Institute we are more determined than ever to fulfill our mission. We extend our condolences to the community and the families of Imam Akonjee and Imam Uddin, and hope that they find the patience and peace that will help them move forward.
