Imams Pray for Las Vegas Victims, Decry Media Hypocrisy

Claiming 59 lives and injuring hundreds of people, Las Vegas witnessed one of the worst mass shootings in the US.

Muslim Imams showed solidarity with victims and vehemently condemned the crime.

They also denounced attempts to play down the horrible crime by using terms other than terrorism to describe it.

Here are some reaction by Imams and scholars to the attack:

Dear Dallas, join us tonight as we #PrayforLasVegas at Thanks-Giving Square from 7-8 PM. There will be various government officials, faith leaders, and advocacy groups present. Spread the word.
