The United Ulama Council of South Africa (UUCSA) condemns the massacre of innocent
civilians at the Westgate Shopping Mall in Nairobi. The barbaric slaughter of innocent human
lives can never be condoned under any kind of religious pretext. This spurious religious
validation of such murder can only be the work of grossly ignorant zealots. The Harakat al-
Shabaab al-Mujahideen which has claimed responsibility is doing a great disservice to Islam
and to Muslims.
