Fatir Hassan, city president SIO Hyderabad, addressing the visitors and Media, condemned the deadly attack and said, “These attacks aim to instill fear and break us, but today we want to say it loud and clear that we are together and will always stand together in all the times sharing love and brotherhood.”
Well done, this is real Islam and humanity…
Even I wanted to visit lady Fatimah church in Jasola, New Delhi but my inability because of my fractured foot. In Sha Allah after I am okay I will visit.
Visiting churches and expressing solidarity after every terrorist attack is just a way to make non muslims fool. If you really want to struggle against Islamic terrorism then pickup gun & kill terrorists..
