200 Muslims Gathered In NYC To Pray For Those Lost In Orlando

"As Muslims, we are united in our outrage over this senseless act of violence."

More than 200 Muslims came together on Sunday in New York City to pray for the victims of the Orlando massacre.

Huffington Post shared a video on Facebook of the Muslims attending the annual Iftar in the Park celebration, in which they broke their fasting for the month of Ramadan, and also used the opportunity to show their support for the victims.

“We’re praying for those who were lost,” said one of the attendees. “That God grants them peace and tranquility.”

“As Muslims, we are united in our outrage over this senseless act of violence,” she added. “We want the rest of the country to know that we are thinking about what happened in Orlando and that we’re standing with those people.”
