On July 21, 2005 the Tewksbury Advocate ran a letter to the editor from Dr. Malik M. A. Khan, president of the Islamic Center of Boston, condemning the 7/7 London bombings. Khan writes, "The members of the Islamic Center of Boston join their fellow Americans and all people of conscience every where in the world in unequivocally condemning the senseless acts of violence that were committed in London on July 7, 2005. No cause or excuse can be used to justify the taking of innocent lives and causing of wanton destruction and injury. The Holy Qur'an teaches us that the killing of one innocent human being is as if one has killed the whole of humanity. As followers of the Islamic faith all of us repudiate this barbarism in the strongest possible terms and ask that every thing possible be done to bring the perpetrators of this heinous crime to justice and punishment."
