FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 30th, 2017
 
Press Release on the tragedy at the Quebec Islamic Cultural Center
 
It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that the BC Muslim Association, on behalf of Muslim community in the Province British Columbia, offers deep condolences to our brothers and sisters in Quebec City.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of innocent victims of this tragic, senseless and horrifying attack inside a Quebec Islamic Cultural Center on Sunday, January 29th, 2017. The Association categorically condemns such acts of violence.  Place of worship is a sacred sanctity and should always be maintained irrespective of one’s faith.

Safety, security and well-being of the community is our number one priority.  We are asking the community to be more vigilant and report to local authorities for any suspicious activities, incidence or threats. The Muslims of British Columbia call upon the authorities to help protect all locations of worship from such violent and illegal acts.  It is our belief that no group or individual in a free and just society should live in fear because of their ethnicity, faith or religious beliefs.  

The BC Muslim Association stands in solidarity with Muslims during this time of sadness, and prays that the community is able to use the tenets of their faith to heal in the wake of this tragic incident.

We offer our sympathies, condolences and prayers, and stand by to assist in any way we can.
 
Sincerely,
 
BC Muslim Association

Al-Baqra Verse 25

And convey good news to those who believe and do good deeds, that they shall have gardens in which rivers flow; whenever they shall be given a portion of the fruit thereof, they shall say: This is what was given to us before; and they shall be given the like of it, and they shall have pure mates in them, and in them, they shall abide.
