Here is a message from the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), which is a “twenty-year-old civil rights group that advocates ‘for the integration of Islam into American pluralism, and for a positive, constructive relationship between American Muslims and their representatives’” (via John Nichols):

MPAC expresses its condolences to the Jewish community and the various other communities whose members were involved in the tragic series of terrorist attacks in recent days. MPAC has sent letters of condolences to the Indian embassy, and encourages people of all faiths and nationalities to stand together against those who seek to divide our communities.

Media reports indicate that more than 150 people have been killed in the attacks. Those responsible for these brutal and immoral attacks should be swiftly brought to justice. Islam considers the use of terrorism to be unacceptable for any purpose.”
