Ustaz Irwan Hadi, assistant director in the Office of the Mufti and Asatizah Development at MUIS, in a statement issued to the media, said, “It is a stark reminder for all communities to rally together, care for each other, and remain vigilant against such senseless acts.”

He added, “Such acts – and the ideas behind them – are a threat to the fabric of our society. MUIS is deeply saddened by the horrific attack and deplores the loss of innocent lives caused by shocking violence, which has no place in any community.” 

Offering condolences, he said, “Our heartfelt prayers go out to the families of the victims, and the security officers, who selflessly placed themselves in harm's way to protect the public.”

Hadi added, “Our strongest defence against such threats is to maintain our bonds of humanity and shared values. Let us build on our mutual respect, trust, compassion and continuous engagement with each other."
