Canadians of All Faiths Condemn the Attack on Syrian Refugees in Vancouver
(Surrey, BC) The Islamic Supreme Council of Canada and the Muslims Against Terrorism strongly condemn last night`s pepper spray attacks on more than 30 Syrian refugees in Vancouver area. This hateful and violent crime must not go unpunished. It is police`s responsibility to capture the culprit(s) and bring him/her to justice. However, this isolated incident should not be seen as a reflection on the Canadian society. Overwhelming majority of Canadians does support the settlement of Syrian refugees in Canada. The government of Canada and the millions of Canadians of all faiths are working hard to help these victims of Daesh’s (ISIS) terrorism.
