Statement on News of Death of Osama Bin Laden                        May 1, 2011


Muslims for Progressive Values (MPV) expresses great relief at the news of the death of Osama Bin Laden as President Obama announced in a special report. Osama Bin Laden has singularly disgraced Islam and dragged our faith through the mud with his promotion of terrorism throughout the world from Indonesia, the Middle East, Africa and here in the United States


MPV applauds the resolve and dedication of President Obama in pursuing Osama Bin Laden. As Muslims, we hope this will forever quench the flame of terrorism and that with the rise of democracy throughout the Middle East we can all finally begin to heal.  Our condolences continue to go out to the families of those who perished on September 11, 2001 as well as all the victims of terrorism committed in the name of Al Qaeda throughout the world.


"We hope that the death of Osama Bin Laden will forever put out the flame of terrorism", says Ani Zonneveld, who heads the organization, "and that with the rise of democratic self governance throughout the Middle East we can finally begin to heal the wounds caused by the evil actions committed by him".
