(WASHINGTON DC - August 9, 2022) The Shia Muslim Foundation is shocked and deeply concerned about the recent killings of four Muslim men in Albuquerque, New Mexico. These killings, which took place between November 2021 and August of this year, have caused fear and uncertainty within the Muslim community and have prompted calls for a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding these crimes.
We stand in solidarity with the families of the victims and the entire Muslim community in Albuquerque, and offer our heartfelt condolences to all those affected by these tragic events. We call on authorities to conduct a thorough and transparent investigation into these crimes, and to bring the perpetrators to justice.
It is deeply disturbing that most of the victims were from the Shia Muslim community, and we urge authorities to consider the possibility that these crimes may have been motivated by hate and bigotry. We also call on authorities to provide necessary support and resources to the families of the victims and the Muslim community in Albuquerque during this difficult time.
The Shia Muslim Foundation stands with the Muslim community in Albuquerque and around the United States in condemning all forms of violence and hate. We will continue to work towards building a world where people of all faiths and backgrounds can live in peace and harmony.
