The violence and brutality committed by persons identifying themselves as “Muslims” is not reflective of the message, teachings and principles of Islam.

So said Trinidad and Tobago’s President, Paula-Mae Weekes in her Eid greetings to the Islamic community.

According to the Trinidad Express, the President’s statement comes at a time when there are unsubstantiated reports that rival gangs— Unruly ISIS from central Trinidad and Rasta City members from Port of Spain — were planning to engage in warfare when Ramadan ends.

In her statement yesterday, Weekes lamented that right there in Trinidad and Tobago there are criminal gangs who call themselves Muslims.
