Muslim Mothers Against Violence
A group of Muslim women at the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati (ICGC) have been making a remarkable difference in the community with one strong message of non-violence. With more than 100 “mothers” committed to its membership, Muslim Mothers Against Violence (MMAV) has declared a foremost obligation and responsibility of teaching and guiding children to be the best of Muslims and, thereby, the best human beings possible. MMAV actively promotes peace, tolerance and non-violence in local communities and throughout the world.
MMAV emphasizes that Islam values the sanctity of human life and considers attacks on innocent lives as inexcusable and contradictory to the teachings of Islam. The group was formed after the terrorist attacks in London in July 2005. Members of this group have pledged:
- To unequivocally condemn all acts of terrorism and violence against innocent civilians.
- To support educational, religious, social, and cultural opportunities that can promote and teach non-violent methods of resolving conflicts to our youth.
- To reach out and collaborate with others of different faiths who have similar objectives.
