The head of the Islamic community in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Husein Kavazovic, said on Saturday that the terrorists who carried out the attacks in Paris on Friday night committed a sin against God and did not represent Muslims or Islam.
"I particularly call upon the Muslims in Europe to preserve their peace and presence of mind and to have no doubts: terrorists do not represent either our faith or our community, and terrorism cannot be justified either morally or religiously or politically," Kavazovic said in a written statement.
He strongly condemned the terrorist attacks in Paris and the killing of innocent people, saying that it was an attack on all humanity.
"This is not just a deep moral fall that is unjustifiable but also a sin against God," Kavazovic said, expressing solidarity with the people of France and confidence that the French state and society would respond to terrorism appropriately and would resolutely oppose the terrorists' intentions to provoke with their attacks anger and retaliation against Muslims and Muslim communities in Europe.
