The June 15 event also served as a platform for local leaders to vigorously condemn what Tabassum Haleem, executive director of the Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago, called a “barbaric assault.”
“We unequivocally say that such an act of hate-fueled violence has no place in any faith, including Islam,” Haleem said. “As people of faith, we believe that all human beings have the right to safety and security, and that each and every human right is inviolable.”
“Terror” not once.
This is the narrative, as we know.
