ISOC Statement on Nahid death

It is with a deep sense of great loss that we announce the passing away of our Sister from Saudi Arabia after she was brutally attacked by unknown assailant/s. The unfortunate incidentoccurred on Tuesday morning (18/06/14) around 10-11am. The full details of theincident were onlygiven to us by the police yesterday, which confirmed that our deceased Sister died from severe multiple injuries on the face and other parts of her body.

Those who knew the sister spoke very fondly of her excellent qualities of self-respect and great honour. May Allah Subhanhu Wa Ta’ala place her amongst His lived ones in Jannah. 

In light of these alarming developments, we are urging our brothers and sisters in the campus and around Colchester to exercise extra caution and be extra vigilant as they go about their daily activities. In case anybody sees anything suspicious or needs urgent help please contact any of the following for immediate assistance:

Sister Salma :07546846812

Or you can dial 999 for the police. 

We have been in close consultation with the police and the university administration and we are assured of extra policing and facilities for Muslim community in and around the campus. Special buses are also being arranged for brothers and sisters to travel and from the campus, especially during Ramadan and full details will be published shortly. 

We are also aware that the police are investigating whether this incident is related to any anti-social behaviour or specifically targeted to our sisters due to their religious beliefs. He hope and pray the terrorist are brought to justice swiftly. 

Currently, our hearts and thoughts are with the sister’s family and friends and we would like to pay our condolences to her brother, her family and the Saudi society for the loss and pray that Allah SWT place her with His loved ones and give the surviving family sabar. 

We will keep you updated of any developments on this tragic incident.
