AAANY Sends our condolences to the family of nazma Khanam

The Arab American Association of New York is deeply saddened by the murder of Nazma Khanam, who was fatally stabbed last night in Queens, New York. Nazma, a Muslim woman who was 60 years-old was only two blocks away from her house in Jamaica Hills, Queens. This is the second attack against a Muslim in Queens within three weeks

As an organization that serves a largely Muslim population, our hearts are heavy each time there is another attack on the Muslim community in New York City. We send our heartfelt condolences to the family of Nazma Khaman and we offer ourselves up for community support at this time.
