Statement of Condolence
Islamic Conference Youth Forum for Dialogue and Cooperation (ICYF-DC), an international institution affiliated to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) condemns the atrocious terrorist attack carried out at Istanbul Ataturk International Airport on 28 June 2016. The night attack against purely civilian targets, which took place during the holy month of Ramadan, shows that terrorism strikes with no regard for faith and any ethic values.
ICYF-DC expresses its deepest and heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims and our hopes for a speedy recovery of the injured ones. ICYF-DC stands with the people of brotherly Turkey at this tragic time as well as reiterates its solidarity with the Government of Turkey and expresses its unequivocal support to all efforts to prevent barbaric terrorism and its inhumane ideology in Turkey and beyond.
Today while our thoughts and dua’s are with our Turkish brothers and sisters, ICYF-DC calls upon Muslim Youth, the OIC Member States, relevant OIC institutions, as well as international community and global civil societies at large to unite their efforts in firm stand against terrorism and its root causes.
May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ala rests His Mercy upon the souls of the victims of Istanbul attack and give strength to the Ummah and all humanity at large for unity in combating the evils of terrorism.
Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilayhi Raji’un.
The Board of ICYF-DC
