Moroccan expat community in Europe stands united against terrorism, hatred, and Islamophobia:

MAP logoThe European Council of Moroccan Ulema (CEOM) called, on Sunday in Copenhagen, for a united front in Europe against terrorism, hatred and Islamophobia in the wake of the terrorist attacks in France.

“We express the unwavering commitment of the Muslim community in Europe to the values of democracy that ensure our living together in mutual respect despite our differences,” the Council’s President Taher Tujgani said.

The despicable attack against the French magazine was condemned by Muslims around the world and cannot in any case be attributed to Islam or be said to have been a vengeance of the Prophet, Tujgani said at an event attended by Christian and Jewish religious figures, diplomats and members of the Muslim community in Scandinavian countries.
