Massachusetts Muslim group plans prayer vigil
HOLBROOK, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts Muslim organization is holding a peace and prayer vigil in memory of the San Bernardino shooting victims.
The vigil by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Boston is planned for 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Holbrook Public Library. The public is invited.
In conjunction, the group will hold a symposium to share the peaceful teachings of True Islam & the Quran.
Amir Malik, President Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Boston Chapter, says his group condemns “this senseless and horrific act of violence in the strongest possible terms.”
Fourteen people were killed and 21 injured in the shootings at a holiday party on Dec. 2. The shooters, Syed Rizwan Farook, and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, were killed by police.
