eDigest: Death toll from Pakistan church bombing rises to 81

Epigraph: We prescribed for the children of Israel that whosoever killed a person — unless it be for killing a person or for creating disorder in the land — it shall be as if he had killed all mankind; and whoso gave life to one, it shall be as if he had given life to all mankind. And Our Messengers came to them with clear Signs, yet even after that, many of them commit excesses in the land. (Al Quran 5:33)

 

The Muslim Times’ sympathies are with our fellow Christians and the victims of the tragedy and we condemn this act of terrorism in the strongest possible terms
