On September 11, 2001, a joint statement was issued by the American Muslim Political Coordination Council (AMPCC) in condemning the terrorist attacks against the U.S. The statement read, in part: "American Muslims utterly condemn what are apparently vicious and cowardly acts of terrorism against innocent civilians. We join with all Americans in calling for the swift apprehension and punishment of the perpetrators. No political cause could ever be assisted by such immoral acts."

Groups that signed the AMPCC statement included the American Muslim Alliance, the American Muslim Council, the Association of Muslim Scientists and Engineers, the Association of Muslim Social Scientists, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Islamic Medical Association of North America, the Islamic Circle of North America, the Islamic Society of North America, the Ministry of Imam W. Deen Mohammed, the Muslim American Society, and the Muslim Public Affairs Council.
