Indiana Muslim Community Statement of Solidarity

Indiana Muslim Community Statement of Solidarity

The Muslim Alliance of Indiana and Muslim Hoosiers across the state stand firm in our commitment to amplifying the voice of those seeking justice from oppression. Our support is with the African American community and the wider BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) community across the nation as they strive towards this cause. We stand in solidarity with peaceful protests across the country calling for change, as more and more people of color are disproportionately victims of police brutality, hate crimes, racism and bigotry.  We commit ourselves, as a community, to take the necessary steps to collaborate with and listen to our black and African American communities, and plan to share the next steps in the coming weeks. 

We also urge the law enforcement community throughout the state of Indiana as well as across the nation to respond with calm as protesters exercise their Constitutional right to free speech and assembly.  

The Quran says “O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for Allah, even if it be against yourselves or parents and relatives.” (Surah An-Nisa, Ayah 135). 

We call on all Muslim Hoosiers to uphold the tenets of our faith, in collaboration with our brothers and sisters of all faiths and backgrounds, in combating oppression, regardless of race, faith or ethnicity. There can be no justice for one without justice for all.

In peace and solidarity,
