Let me be clear, such incidents don’t truly reflect all of Canada. Being a Pakistani Muslim immigrant, I’ve been living in this country for last 21 years and have received a lot of love.
My fellow Canadians know how to rise against racism, hatred and intolerance.
This was a brutal hate crime and act of terrorism. We all condemn this and this beautiful country has no room for this brutality. As a Canadian, we respect all religions and stand together. According to recent news coverage police said in a statement, “Investigators believe that this was an intentional act and that the victims were targeted because of their Islamic faith. There is evidence that this was a planned, premeditated act, motivated by hate.”
As an Ahmadi Muslim we believe in love for all, hatred for none.
