The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA also urged calm after 14 people were killed and 17 were injured Wednesday at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino.
“We condemn this senseless and horrific act of violence in the strongest possible terms,” said Ahsan Khan, President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Los Angeles East Chapter, in a written statement.

“Our Community has been in San Bernardino County for nearly three decades, and yet have never seen such depravity. Our hearts go out to the innocent victims and their families. We stand in solidarity with them as their neighbors and brothers and sisters in peace.”
In light of this tragedy, Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Los Angeles East and Inland Empire Chapters announced that will be holding a prayer vigil for the victims, their families and the entire grieving community.
“We pray for the swift recovery of the injured and for our heroic San Bernardino County law enforcement officers. We continue to offer our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims,” Khan said.
The prayer vigil will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday at Baitul Hameed Mosque, 11941 Ramona Ave., Chino.
