ISCC and MAT Strongly Condemn Hate Package Sent to Quebec Mosque
(Calgary) The Islamic Supreme Council of Canada (ISCC) and Muslims Against Terrorism (MAT) strongly condemn the hate package sent to a Quebec Mosque on last Friday. This is the same mosque where six worshipers were gunned down by a terrorist this year in January. ISCC and MAT demand that the Quebec government and the Federal government must do everything to find the hatemongers. The founder of ISCC and MAT, Imam Syed Soharwardy said in a statement today, “I am very disappointed that the local Police is not considering this latest hate package a serious hate crime. This is the issue with our law enforcement agencies. They seem to be not interested in prevention. They wait for the potential terrorist to commit a crime first and then react.”
It is important to note that a similar hate package was sent to the same mosque before the attack on the mosque in January 2017 in which six innocent Canadian Muslims were massacred by a terrorist. Are the police waiting for a repeat of the terrorist attacks and then will react to a tragedy? ISCC and MAT request Canadian Police and other law enforcement agencies to find the hatemongers and take necessary steps in order to prevent tragedies.
ISCC and MAT request all Canadian citizens to unite against all forms of hate and racism. We must not let the terrorists and the hatemongers succeed by dividing Canadians.
