The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at Canada strongly condemns the brazen arson attack ona mosque in Edson, Alberta. It is reported that the mosque was set on fire shortly after a small group of people left the building after evening prayers.
“We are shocked and appalled to learn that a mosque of peaceful worshippers was attacked in Alberta, particularly during the festive days of Eidul Fitr,” says National President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at Canada, Mr. Lal Khan Malik. “This is against what Canada stands for. As a nation founded on acceptance and freedom of conscience, we must unite against any kind of hatred and injustice. We stand in solidarity with the congregation of the Edson mosque and with the whole community of Edson during this difficult time.”
