The Islamic Shia Ithna Asheri Jamaat of Toronto grieves for the devastating loss of life in an attack on a mosque in Quebec City. Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers are with the families of the victims and those injured in the attack.
As proud Canadian Muslims, we strongly condemn any act of violence and believe that our strength as a nation will always come from our diversity, never our division.
We commend the Canadian authorities on their swift action in apprehending the suspects.
“Surely we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we shall return.” (Quran 2:156)
