The Islamic Cultural Center of Fresno (ICCF) condemns the recent attack upon the Imam Al-Khoei Center of Queens, New York that occurred on Jan 1, 2012 while worshippers were inside. ICCF strongly denounces any hate crime against places of worship and violence against members of any religious group, regardless of faith.
We thank New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg for meeting with officials of the Al-Khoei Center regarding this event and urge him to emphasize investigation of the matter in depth for future prevention of such hate crimes.
