Local religious leaders met Wednesday in Dearborn Heights to condemn recent acts of vandalism against several Shi'a-owned businesses in Metro Detroit while promoting the need for restraint and understanding following the attacks.
"These kinds of acts of violence are unacceptable," said Imam Mohammad Ali Elahi of the Islamic House of Wisdom in Dearborn Heights. "We condemn any acts of violence or terrorism against others. We all pray for peace and an end to the violence."
The Islamic House of Wisdom hosted Wednesday's event, which included more than a dozen local religious leaders. The group meets on a regular basis, Elahi said, but the recent attacks forced the leaders to take action.
