“We are sure that the criminals that committed these acts of terror will receive the most severe punishment. Islam and the Muslim community condemn the murderers of innocent people, condemn the terrorists who will face horrible punishment from the Almighty as the Holy Quran says: “He who kills a believing soul intentionally, Allah makes the Fire of Hell his abode,” Gainutdin’ statement posted on the website of the Council of Muftis on Tuesday says.
He also wished speedy recovery to those injured in the terror attacks.
