The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC) has written to the Russian Ambassador in Australia to express its deepest condolences following the recent shooting at the Crocus City Hall in Moscow.

In the letter, AFIC President Dr Rateb Jneid, stated that AFIC strongly condemns any act of violence and terrorism and stands in solidarity with the Russian people during this difficult time. AFIC hopes those responsible for this heinous act will be brought to justice.

AFIC would like to emphasise that the targeting of innocent civilians is un-Islamic and goes against the fundamental teachings of our faith. We believe in the sanctity of human life and the importance of promoting peace and understanding among all communities.

In light of this tragic event, AFIC extends its deepest condolences to all those affected, and its thoughts and sympathies go out to them.

The organisation remains committed to working towards a world free from violence and terror.

AFIC, established in 1964, stands as the Peak Muslim Organisation in Australia, with 170 members including 9 State and Territory Councils. It has a rich history of pioneering numerous community services and actively advocating for the rights and representation of the Muslim community.


Dr Rateb Jneid, President
