In a statement ISNA President Azhar Azeez said:
"As I have said before, the continued barbaric and un-Islamic actions of ISIS only confirm that they are not adherents to the faith they proclaim. They are without mercy and do not value the sanctity of innocent human life. Our deepest condolences go out to the family, friends and loved ones for the loss of Abdul-Rahman Kassig. May Allah grant him the highest levels of paradise."
ISNA Executive Director and CEO Hazem Bata said:
"I am deeply disheartened to hear about the murder of Abdul-Rahman Kassig. He was a kind young man who dedicated his life to helping those in need in some of the most dangerous places on earth. I am proud to call him a fellow Hoosier."
Over the past month, ISNA in coordination with the the Kassig family, has helped organized several events in honor of the humanitarian work of Abdul-Rahman Kassig and assisted in a social media campaign urging for his release.
