We unequivocally express our frown condemnation of the dastard and ugly act with a pledge of support for the Malian people in this tragedy that has triggered the masses into shock and perplexity. The Union presses for doubled efforts at extinguishing the fire of this flaming disorder in the region where various groups of people have been co -existing peacefully for donkey centuries. The government authorities, governors, statemen, scholars and Imams should be at the forefront of stakeholders concerned with confronting this disorder.

May the blessings of Allah be upon Muhammad; his household and entire companions.
