CHINO - Leaders of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community's Baitul Hameed Mosque conveyed their sympathy and condolences to the families of Sandy Hook Elementary School during their afternoon sermon today.
Earlier, a gunman opened fire inside Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut, killing 26 people, most of them children.
"We are so sorry, we are so sad, it is great tragedy not just for the people of that town, although they have suffered a lot there are feeling more pain then us, but it is tragedy to the whole nation," said Imam Shamshad Nasir, of the Baitul Hameed Mosque in Chino.
"These children are our children and we feel so sad, so sad. I don't know how to talk about it."
Friday's sermon prayed for families and the government officials of Connecticut, Nasir said.
At times of tragedy Nasir said he tells his community to look to the Holy Quran for guidance.
"Because this has happened the government officials have to do more to protect children, people, protect citizens. It is job and the duty of the government and at the same time we should control our guns and weapons and with out that we cannot do anything," Nasir said.
He said just because this is a free country, it doesn't mean everything should be free.
"Sometimes we feel there is more danger because freedom can cause trouble...some people may not like this idea, but gun control should be done by government," he said.
"If every 20 year old child or (younger) than that are holding guns in their hand and shooting, I don't think this is a wise step.
"Freedom does not mean we should give dangerous things in the hands of people all the time."
Yeah f*** him they target children....
>> but gun control should be done by government ...
Yeah, you rat - what a surprise you’d come up with that.
I’d like to hear this guy’s position on bomb control.
From that religion of peace.
This coming from evil bastards that strap bombs on thier children and kill them in the name of honor. They to are afraid of an armed citizenry I wonder why?
If they controlled their ‘gun’ maybe their little boys wouldn’t walk funny.
Gun control? Good idea. Let’s stop shipping weapons to all Islamic governments and groups.
It is a little suspicious that this man advocates taking away guns from responsible, law abiding, citizens, so only the government and criminals have guns.
Paraphrasing the inestimable ANNIE COULTER..
Somewhere in one of Ann’s 8 or 9 best sellers she tells us...something like..
Let’s see, how about ...i’ll give up my gun when you take away the gun of the last jihadi sleeper (or every other killer) in the USA......
‘God made man, God made woman..and COLONEL COLT made ‘em equal’
Looks like the hoplophobes have some new partners for the latest push.
No longer obligatory.
Of course Muslims want Gun Control.
Its harder for them to be Pedophiles if people shoot them
You mean like in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen and Pakistan? None of this really has anything to do with guns and everything to do with a vacuum of values which liberal and anti-Bible Islamists try to promote.
Wonder if he had anything to say to the families of the victims at Beslan.
Needless to say I don’t agree.
