The EFC expresses our condolences to Muslims across Canada after the deplorable act of violence in London, Ont., on June 6.
We are appalled by the attack on a Muslim family which police think was motivated by hatred. Anti-Muslim hate and violence have no place in our country.
We grieve with the Afzaal family and their community. We lament the fear this attack will foster in those who seek to express their faith and customs in their daily lives.
We all must be vigilant to uphold the dignity of every Canadian and to denounce speech and actions which challenge and undermine
it our common humanity.
Please join us in prayer for the family and the Muslim community.
