Led by the Supreme Council of Kenya Muslim Secretary General Adan Wachu, the council expressed their condolences to the family of the nine year old boy who was killed during the incident.
It pointed out that no one should cite religion as a reason for the heinous crime which has been blamed on revenge attacks by Al Shabaab or their sympathizers here in the country.
"Generally, we have been having problems of perceptions that these types of crimes are associated with people who profess Islam as a religion which of course is not the case.
