Sheikh Maytham Al Salman issued a statement following the terrorist attacks in Paris on November 13, 2015:

“Firstly, I would like to extend my deepest condolences to the families and friends of those killed in Paris yesterday and earlier in Beirut. My prayers are to all the French and Lebanese families who lost their loved ones.”

“It is our duty to stand firm at this dark time and collaborate at international levels in our war against terrorism. Condemning these terrible, senseless acts committed in the name of Islam & religion is not enough, it is time for all of us to join forces in dismantling violent takfirism. The horrific acts of terrorism are being legitimized and/or incited directly and indirectly by takfiri schools of thought. It is time to adapt terrorism countering strategies by state and non-state actors rather than solely denouncing these terrorists acts after they take the lives of innocent people across the globe.”
