Nation of Islam, Minister Tony Muhammad and Muhammad’s Mosque #27’s Official Statement In Rebuttal to “Jihad” Flyer
It has come to the attention of the Nation of Islam, Minister Tony Muhammad and Muhammad’s Mosque #27 of Los Angeles California, that a flyer is circulating in and around the Los Angeles area requesting that the Crips and the Bloods join the Nation of Islam in an attack on the Los Angeles Police Department.
The Nation of Islam religiously, historically, and categorically rejects aggression. The Nation of Islam, through the efforts of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and his western regional representative, Minister Tony Muhammad, has worked tirelessly to bring peace between the Crips, the Bloods, and the Los Angeles Police Department as a whole.
The Nation of Islam would not and will not engage in actions that would undermine decades of bridge-building and peace-making. The Nation of Islam, Minister Tony Muhammad and Muhammad’s Mosque #27 appreciates any support it can receive from members of the community in its peaceful and lawful struggle against police brutality, however, the Nation of Islam rejects the efforts of anyone or any group that seeks to bring further disruption, chaos, and bloodshed to an already tense and volatile situation.
The creation and dissemination of this flyer is an obvious and deliberate attempt by a person or persons outside of the Nation of Islam to make mischief and increase violence in Los Angeles. Therefore, the Nation of Islam, Minister Tony Muhammad and Muhammad Mosque #27 of Los Angeles California absolutely disavows any connection and support to any flyer, person, or group that seeks to increase violence in the city of Los Angeles.
