“I was deeply saddened by the news of the wildfires in California that took away lives of at least 40.
I extend my sincere condolences to the residents of California and to the American people, especially those who lost their loved ones during the fires and those who were affected by it.
At this difficult time, I urge everyone to support those who were impacted by the fires as well as the rescue and relief workers.
I pray to God, the Most Compassionate, to grant speedy recovery for the wounded and to provide perseverance to the firefighters, and the rescue & relief workers.”
