Condemnation of mosque attack

2018-05-31 06:01

THE Arya Samaj SA condemns in the strongest possible terms the vicious attack on the Imam Hussain Mosque and worshippers in Ottawa, Verulam.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this brutal attack and their loved ones.

We trust the perpetrators will be arrested and brought to face the full might of the law for committing such a violent and bloody crime.

Freedom of religion is a human right and all places of worship are sacred.

To violate such a sacred place is an affront to the tolerant and diverse society we are striving to create.

Our Constitution protects freedom of religion and thus we cannot allow this type of action to take root in a society based on equality, dignity and diversity.

Peace, tolerance and respect for others are the cornerstones of all religions and this bloody attack goes against everything religion stands for.

The Vedic maxim, may we see all with a friendly eye, is an ideal worth striving for.
