Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood Condemns Boston Bombings

Egypt’s ruling Muslim Brotherhood issued a statement on Tuesday condemning the Boston Marathon bombings, claiming Sharia (Islamic law) did not condone violence against civilians and rejected “any means” of terrorizing people. 

According to the Associated Press, the group’s political arm issued a statement expressing “condolences to the American people and to the families of victims, with hopes for a quick recovery of those injured.” 

The group also said claimed that Islamic law “firmly rejects assaults on civilians and doesn’t accept any means of terrorizing people, regardless of their religion, color, or gender.”

“The sinful assaults in Boston ascertain the necessity of solidarity of the international community in efforts to achieve justice and well-being for all nations and communities, and to ensure that these crimes don’t take place again,” the statement read.
