MCC CONDEMNS EDMONTON ATTACK
Muslim Council of Calgary, the representative organization of majority of Sunni Muslims living in Calgary, unequivocally condemns the recent attack on a police officer in Edmonton, Alberta. According to information obtained from press reports and video replays, this attack involved a man who first stabbed a police constable, and then reportedly drove a truck aiming to run into pedestrians.
Muslim Council of Calgary and its affiliate organizations would like to extend their heart felt and deepest sympathies to people of Edmonton and would like to condemn this barbaric act of senseless violence against innocent people.
Once again, we appeal to the community to stay vigilant to identify such culprits and take actions to prevent such tragedies. We appeal to the community to make all possible efforts to isolate those who are working against the core values of civilized societies and flout the basic principles of all religions and beliefs.
