IFT Condemns the Attacks in Edmonton

IFT Condemns the Attacks in Edmonton, Prays for Victims and Their Families and Reiterates Efforts for Peace and Coexistence with all Canadians

1st October, 2017

The Islamic Foundation of Toronto is deeply saddened at the senseless attacks that took place in
Edmonton over the weekend.

We are confident the perpetrators will be brought to justice by the authorities.

We pray for everyone affected, including the injured and their families.

We condemn hate and violent extremism in all its forms. This is against the core teachings of Islam.

We reiterate our stance on living peacefully and coexisting with all Canadians regardless of their faith, background and persuasions. We continue to work with all our community and government partners to confront violent extremism,
islamophobia and hate.

May Canadians be united in peace, harmony, prosperity and safety.

Thank you,

Akbar Warsi
Islamic Foundation of Toronto
