Dear Editor,

I AM deeply saddened to hear about the two young boys who lost their lives in No.43 Village, Berbice. Although we know that death is something that will overcome every one us one day, to see two youngsters lose it so early is terrible. And it is even more horrifying when we discover that they were stabbed to death by their very own uncle.
It is at this time that community members, regardless of faith or race, should come together and give their condolences to the family, and hold out their hand in support. The founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, in line with the teachings of Islam and Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him stated that:

“Be the true well-wishers of everyone. There should be nothing inside you except truth, and there should be nothing outside you except truth and sympathy for Mankind. If you desire that God should be pleased with you in Heaven, become to each other like real brothers. It is our principle to have sympathy for the whole of Mankind. If a person sees that a fire has broken out in the house of a Hindu neighbor, and he does not get up to help him in putting it out, I truly tell you that he is not of me. If one of my followers sees a Christian being killed, and he does not go to his assistance to rescue him, then I tell you quite truly that he is not of us.”
We see the news of death almost daily. There is no shortage of murders taking place in this country. Although the authorities are trying their best to stop this madness, it is still taking place. The least we can do is deal with the result in the proper way, and sympathise with one another, making sure we build a healthy and caring community within our neighbourhoods.
