Irish Muslim Peace and Integration Council Condemns Campaign Inciting Hatred

[Dublin, 25 February 2024] – The Irish Muslim Peace and Integration Council (IMPIC) expresses deep concern over the ongoing campaign by a small number of individuals who continue to spread misleading information about Islam and Muslims in Ireland, inciting hatred and division within our society. We are particularly alarmed by the recent attack on our chairperson, Shaykh Dr. Umar Al-Qadri, amidst the current rise of Islamophobic and divisive rhetoric online.

However, as we bask in the joy of Christmas, our hearts are heavy with the awareness of the ongoing war in Palestine, the very land where Jesus was born. This conflict serves as a stark reminder of the challenges faced by those living in the region and calls us to reflect on our shared responsibility to advocate for peace and justice, irrespective of religious affiliations. In a world marred by division and discord, it is crucial that we, as
