The Apex Mosque is outraged by the recent acts of violence and resulting innocent lives lost most recently across the US in Louisiana, Minnesota, Texas, Florida and internationally in Iraq, Turkey, Bangladesh, Somalia and other affected areas. We stand with the victims of these senseless acts of violence, mourn with their families and pray for their ease and comfort during this time of difficulty. The Apex Mosque sends its condolences and prayers and urges the community to stand united against these despicable acts.
