We condemn the terrorist attack on the United States. No language can adequately express the anger and condemnation we feel against the perpetrators of the dastardly acts committed on September 11, 2001. The sorrow that entered our hearts is beyond description. Innocent lives from all over the world have been lost at the World Trade Center and Washington, DC. Among those who were killed were hundreds of young men and women from India and South Asia, whose fruitful life and future have been shockingly cut short in the name of religion. We pray that the nations around the world, especially those in South Asia, will readily come forward and do their best to eliminate this terror. The rhetoric of terrorism is a hollow rhetoric, but with deadly poison. We need to pray for the rhetoric of reason and love to re-establish itself in the hearts of men all over the world. May God give America the solace and grace she needs at this hour of trial and tribulation.
