MUSLIMS ALSO SHOCKED BY KILLING AT VAUGHAN PLANT TODAY
Muslims send sympathies to victims, families & co-workers
(Tulsa 9/26/14) The Islamic Council of Oklahoma reports that Oklahoma Muslims are shocked, horrified and saddened about the loss
of innocent life and the injuries at Moore’s Vaughan facility today. Sympathies go to the victims as well as the families and co-workers
of the women who were attacked. Oklahoma Muslims, like all other Oklahomans, work and attend school with the belief that those
are safe places to go.
Workplace and school killings are tragic but are unfortunately becoming more common in America. Every loss is felt by family,
friends and strangers. Scholars and everyday Muslims maintain that no religious or political goal is ever achieved by these acts.
The Alabama UPS workplace murders last week are just as upsetting.
Mr. Nolen, the alleged assailant, has been reported by media outlets as having been just fired from his job and that he is a recent
convert to Islam. According to Sheryl Siddiqui, Spokesperson for the Islamic Council of Oklahoma, “He was not known to any of the
leadership in Oklahoma mosques. We do not have any confirmation of his conversion either in prison or out in the community.”
Muslims are supporting law enforcement efforts to perform their due diligence and seek justice in this case.

in Oklahoma. The council works to promote improved communication, cooperation and best practices among Islamic organizations

Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS)
On May 2, 2014, the first confirmed case was reported in a traveler to the United States.
Since members of our community are more likely to to travel to Saudi Arabia and
other countries in which MERS has been reported its important that we all know about
this illness. Please visit CDC web site www.cdc.gov to get more information.
If you have travelled to any of the listed countries in which cases have been reported in the recent past and come up with respiratory symptoms contact your physician and take measures to avoid exposures to others by taking precautions similar to those which we use for prevention of spread of other respiratory illnesses such as flu, including avoiding coming to mosque for congregational prayers and praying at home.
Further information regarding this infection is available at CDC s website mentioned above.
