Muslim Council of Calgary, the representative organization of majority of Sunni Muslims living in Calgary, unequivocally condemns the recent attack in Toronto, which took 10 lives and injured 15 others.
MCC and its affiliate organizations would like to extend their heart felt and deepest sympathies to people of Toronto and would like to condemn this barbaric act of senseless violence against innocent people.
We strongly urge all communities and groups to reject violence at all costs. Such practices by any group, whosoever the perpetrator, are barbaric and inhuman. The killing of innocent victims should be condemned by everyone. We must stand united in our efforts to stop those responsible and to fight against hate by embracing the values of diversity, inclusion and peace.
