Dear Members
 
Salaamun Alaikum
 
Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un is a part of a verse from the Holy Qur'an which translates to "Surely we belong to Allah and to Allah we shall return."
 
It is with deep shock and sadness that we received the news of the rampage shootings across two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch on Friday 15th March 2019. At least 49 people were killed and dozens seriously injured in the terrorist attacks. The world is in a state of shock and disbelief of this horrific and evil attacks on innocent worshipers.  
 
New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described the horror as a terrorist attack, saying it was perpetrated by suspects with "extremist views" that had no place in her country or the wider world. It was one of the New Zealand's "darkest days," she said in a press conference Friday.
 
The Secretariat joins the rest of the world in condemning this despicable and gruesome violence resulting in the deaths of innocent people including young children.
 
Our hearts go out to the victims and families of this senseless act of terrorism. We pray that Allah (SWT) to protect all peace loving people in all parts of the world from such cowardly acts. 
 
Attached to this message is a Statement issued by the World Federation jointly with the Regional Federations.

WORLD FEDERATION EXTENDS IT’S ACTIVITIES IN INDIA

FORMATION OF THE GUJARAT FEDERATION – SYNOPSIS OF EVENTS

Among the achievements of the World Federation is the formation of Gujarat Federation during May/June 1979. A Constitutional Conference was held in Bhavnagar where delegates from nearly twenty four Jamaats attended. Ever since 1976, we have been persuading Khoja Shia Ithna Asheri Jamaats of India to form an All India Federation, but to no avail.
 
Bombay Jamaat was requested to take an initiative, with a sure hope that other smaller Jamaats would follow in the wake and co-operate. As time lapsed, and no result was visible, the Jamaats of Gujarat decided to take a lead.
