The Muslim community in Malta waged a campaign against terrorism on Friday afternoon at the mosque in Paola, Malta.

Some 100 members of the Muslim community, led by Imam Mohamed El Sadi, participated in the protest in the wake of terrorist attacks in Paris and against IS.

A statement, read out condemning terrorist attacks in various parts of the world, stressing that the Muslim community affirms that terrorists are first and foremost the enemy of Islam as they abuse the Muslim faith and damage the reputation of Muslims.

Addressing the press, the Imam said members of his community sometimes were the targets of insults by people who made generalizations and linked all Muslims to terrorism. Such generalizations, he said, harmed those who made them as well as Muslims.

The Muslim community, he stressed, would immediately report any knowledge it could have on extremist elements who could harbor terrorism. Endit
