The Iftaa` Department Condemns the Terrorist Incident in Sri Lanka


The General Iftaa` Department condemns the cowardly terrorist incident that targeted a group of churches and hotels in Sri Lanka, which resulted in the loss of innocent lives, attacks on places of worship, and intimidation of safe people. This horrible act contradicts with the higher objectives of Islamic Law as well as all divine laws. It also contradicts with the provisions of Islamic law which aim to enhance peace and security, stop bloodshed and protect places of worship. Such cowardly acts targeting worshippers and places of worship contribute in spreading hatred amongst people and create obstacles amongst them, which keeps them in a state of continued struggle instead of cooperation for the good of humanity.


The Department extends its deepest condolences to the families of the victims and wishes a speedy recovery to the wounded.


We ask Allah to protect Jordan from every evil and bless it with continued peace and security.
