'Please know you are our beloved neighbors'
ST. CHARLES – Nearly 100 people filled a meeting room at the Islamic Centre of Kane County in St. Charles on Thursday night, with representatives from other faiths and Mayor Ray Rogina, standing together to condemn the terrorism attacks on the two mosques in New Zealand, in which 50 people were killed during worship.
Facing a standing-room-only crowd, Asia Fatima said, “We are gathered this evening to stand in soldarity with those impacted by the senseless act in New Zealand.”
"It is more important than ever to stay united and stand against evil," Fatima said. "We say no to division. We say no to hate. And we say no to violence.”
