The Sheikhul Islam Office has released a letter condemning the bombing incidents in Pattani province that injured 61 innocent people earlier this week. 

Two bombs were detonated on Tuesday afternoon at a Big C store in Muang Pattani district. 

The office said that the vicious act had been designed to take innocent lives and thus violated the teachings of Islam, which clearly forbids such a crime. 

The Sheikhul Islam Office urged the perpetrators to refrain from engaging in further violence against local residents. 

The office also implored the government to do everything in its power to prevent such incidents from occurring, while providing assistance to victims and bringing the culprits to justice. 

The letter ends with a plea to the administration to find peaceful solutions to end the violence that is plaguing the South, especially by means of promoting public participation.
