— says Pres. Granger
President David Granger has declared that there is no place for extremism in Guyana. This comes in light of the recent terrorist attacks in France and the United States.
The President made this disclosure yesterday, as he addressed a gathering at the commissioning of the ISA Elementary School and the Guyana Islamic Trust (GIT) at their East Street, Georgetown Headquarters.
The Guyanese leader stated that he is proud of the GIT as it relates to their efforts in condemning extremism. He also congratulated the organization for the moral stance they have taken in the fight against terrorism.
His Excellency made reference to the recent San Bernardino, California massacre that occurred on December 02. Fourteen persons lost their lives after gunmen stormed the Inland Regional Centre and shot at employees. Twenty one persons were also injured in the mass shootings.
On November 13, 128 persons were killed in Paris after a coordinated attacked by Islamic terrorists equipped with AK-47’s and strapped with bombs. The taking of these innocent lives occurred at six sites throughout the French capital.
Speaking on the carnage, Granger affirmed that there is no teaching in Islam, Christianity and Hinduism that justifies the taking of lives—”the massacres, the killing of innocent people”.
The Head of State is calling on all Guyanese to continue the tradition of religious tolerance. He pledged his support in working with GIT and members of the Islamic community in Guyana that have been condemning such nasty attacks.
President Granger said that such attacks will do harm to Guyana. He pointed out that the country has faced many problems—political and economical,—but he has never heard of any religious riots or fights among the three main religions in Guyana.
Exactly one year ago Guyana born Adnan Gulshair el Shukrijumah who was listed as one of the world’s most wanted terrorists was killed in Pakistan.
