ISNA Offers Condolences to the Chapel Hill Shooting Victims' Families, Urges Law Enforcement to Investigate as Possible Hate Crime


 

(Plainfield, IN 2/11/15) Today the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) offers condolences to the families and loved ones of the shooting victims who were murdered near the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill (UNC-Chapel Hill) campus. 

According to media reports, three American Muslim college students: Deah Shaddy Barakat , a graduate student at UNC-Chapel Hill, his wife Yusor Abu-Salha,  and her sister, Razan Abu-Salha, were all found shot to death in a condo near the campus yesterday evening. Craig Stephen Hicks, who self identifies as an "anti-theist," surrendered to police and has been charged with first-degree murder. 

 

Law enforcement as of yet, have initially commented that a parking dispute may have sparked the shooting, but investigation is still ongoing.  Hicks' Facebook account did show however, that he was anti-religion and posted several links about atheism.   The father of two of the victims also believes that their murder was because of their religion and culture. 

SEE: 

"Although the police have initially commented that a parking dispute may have been a factor to the shooting, we fear that this may be also a hate-motivated act based on the suspect's anti-religion posts on social media and the viciousness of the crime itself. We are concerned that the rising anti-Muslim rhetoric in our society may have encouraged some to commit violence against American Muslims. We urge law enforcement to investigate this case as a possible hate crime, " said ISNA President Azhar Azeez. "Our heartfelt condolences go to the families and loved ones of the victims."
