Our Thoughts and Prayers Are With All Those in Boston
April 15, 2013
MPAC expresses its condolences for all those in Boston and with the families and loved ones of the two victims and at least 100 injured from the explosions.
MPAC condemns this terrorist attack; this is a horrible crime, and we call on all of us as Americans to work together to bring those responsible to justice. The Boston Marathon is an annual, historic event with more than 28,000 people participating from all around the world. To attack those on what is supposed to be a day of jubilation is criminal and inexcusable.

MPAC has been in touch with federal authorities and Muslim community leaders in Boston to get up-to-date and accurate information as this fluid situation develops. At this point no one has claimed responsibility. We will convey any information we receive from authorities.
“This is a time for us to show resilience and calmness, as we come together to help the American public recover from this heinous act,” said Salam Al-Marayati, MPAC President. “At this point the investigation is too early to determine the nature of this crime.”
We ask everyone to reach out to their faith and civic leaders to coordinate with authorities to bring resolution to this tragedy.
At a press conference this afternoon, Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis urged the public to come forward with any information about the explosions, please call 800-494-TIPS (8477). To identify family members or victims, please call 617-635-4500 or visit the Google Person Finder.
