In a letter to His Eminence Dr. Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith, Archbishop of Colombo, the National President of the Sri Lanka Ahmadiyya Muslim Community A,H. Nasir Ahmad states:

On behalf of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Sri Lanka, I express my deepest sympathies and condolences to all those affected by the multiple attacks on churches and hotels in the country on Sunday – 21st April 2019.

Such heinous and utterly inhumane attacks must be condemned in the strongest possible terms. It is a grave tragedy that scores dead and hundreds injured whilst joining together for worship. All people, no matter their faith or belief, have the right to worship peacefully.

Our heartfelt prayers are with the victims of these attacks and all those who have been affected. May the perpetrators of this evil act be promptly brought to justice”.
