This attack is an attack on all humanity, and we stand in solidarity with our African American and Christian brethren,” said Wasim Malik, Vice President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, “We must maintain the lines of dialogue and understanding to prevent future such attacks. We pray for the departed that may God be with them always.”

Grateful for Court upholding American values
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA applauds the United States Supreme Court for ruling in favor of Samantha Elauf in her religious discrimination suit against retailer Abercrombie & Fitch. In 2008, Abercrombie & Fitch denied Elauf employment because she wears hijab, or the Islamic head covering.
"This ruling aligns with American values of freedom of religion and practice,” said Dr. Nasim Rehmatullah, Senior Vice President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, “It is critical to the success of our diverse nation that companies learn from this and adapt their policies to work in the 21st century.”
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA has championed the Islamic principles of justice and religious freedom in all affairs of government. This Supreme Court ruling advances these causes, and we hope to see them continue.
