With the latest turmoil in the Middle East leading to thousands of deaths over the last two weeks, the Islamic Masumeen Center in Hopkinton released a statement expressing concern for those affected and calling for peace.
“Our mosque is deeply concerned about the ongoing conflict in Israel and Palestine, which has caused immense suffering to innocent civilians on both sides,” the statement reads. “We earnestly call for a resolution to this longstanding issue, with a focus on justice, human rights and an agreed solution that respects the rights and aspirations of both Israelis and Palestinians. We stand in solidarity with all those affected by this conflict and pray for a future where peace and harmony prevail in the region.”
The Masumeen Center is a nonprofit organization that serves the Muslim community of the Greater Boston area.
