‘Terrorism Has No Place In Islam’- Mesut Ozil Condemns Terrorist Attacks In France

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has condemned the recent terror attacks in France, asserting that Islam prohibits the “killing of innocent” people.

The 32-year-old World Cup winner, a devout Muslim who has Turkish roots, took to social media on Friday to condemn the horrific stabbings in Nice which left three people dead.

Thursday’s knife attack at a church was committed by a Tunisian migrant who was shot by police officers.

A woman in her seventies who came to the church to pray was beheaded by the attacker, who also stabbed two more people before armed police apprehended him.

The attacker was shot and critically injured by the four police officers who responded to the incident, and currently remains in hospital in a serious condition.

French President Emmanuel Macron branded the incident an “Islamist terrorist attack.”

Ozil shared an emotional Instagram post explaining that terrorism has no religion.

“Terrorism has no place in Islam,” he wrote under a picture of him at the holy site of Mecca, which featured a a quote from the Koran: “Whosoever kills an innocent human being, it shall be as is he has killed all mankind and whoever saves the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind.”
