OFFICIAL STATEMENT

NASIMCO is deeply concerned by the loss of life and damage caused by Hurricane Irma, which is now moving towards the US mainland.

Our prayers are with those affected and with the millions of people who are in the path of hurricane Irma, including our community members in Orlando and Miami. Our thoughts are also with all those whose homes and livelihoods have been destroyed or adversely affected by this terrible storm.

We would also like to convey our gratitude to all those working on the rescue effort at this very challenging time.

President, NASIMCO

OFFICIAL STATEMENT

NASIMCO strongly rejects recent allegations that suggest the organization condones and advocates for behaviour that is considered to be un-Islamic.
We strive to uphold and promote the values, ideals and practices of the Islamic Shia Ithna-Asheri faith. Any information to the contrary is false and misleading.

In regard to the specific matter highlighting the private life of a NASIMCO official, we assure all community members that we are looking into the issue quite seriously and will address it in an appropriate and timely manner.

We also strongly encourage all community members to discontinue the widespread sharing of misinformation and hate-mongering as this too, goes against
our collective Islamic values. Community members have a right to share their valid concerns and we request you to channel these constructively by emailing communications@nasimco.org.

Mohamed Dewji
President, NASIMCO
