San Bernardino Terrorism is condemned unequivocally and its repercussions to be limited  

Washington, DC, December 3, 2015 – First of all, our hearts go out to the families of the victims and their loved ones, 14 people have lost their lives to terrorism and another 17 are seriously injured. We pray with our hearts, souls and minds, asking God to guide us all to restore sanity.

It is time for the responsible agencies to study the backgrounds of the suspected terrorists Syed Farook and Tafsheen Malik to understand the sources and causes for their behavior, it is a serious breach of security and we have to take corrective actions. 

It is our duty and collective responsibility to keep law and order and faithfully guard the safety of every citizen. Hate is one of the many sources of disrupting the peace in a society and it is our duty to track down the source of such hate and work on mitigating it. We have an obligation to maintain a balance in the society.

As Americans we have deliberated on this, and we have to find solutions to the Gun violence. 

As Americans, our attitude should be, “You murdered innocent people, and you are going to pay for it, whatever the course of law allows us to impose on you, we will.”

We should not be bamboozled into believing that the criminal’s religion inspired him to do that, and spend time finding faults with his religion. He not only murdered, but is also making a fool out of us.  Why bark at the religion, it is an intangible which you cannot shoot, beat, kick, slit, hang or bury, what is that futile exercise then for? Our legitimate goal is to restore trust in the society by punishing the criminal.

No one should look to Muslims for the acts of terrorists, just as no one should slap the blame of a murderer on his family, friends, community, and mayor of the town or pastor of his church.

No one is responsible for a criminal’s acts but him. Blaming religion has not done any good to anyone, but crated greater chaos, distrust and apprehension.  
Restoring peace and sanity should be our goal.

At America Together Foundation, we are committed to building cohesive societies, where no humans to live in apprehension or fear of the other.
