We are utterly heartbroken by the news of the violent murder of four members of a Muslim family in London, Ontario.
We strongly condemn this hate crime and call on political leaders to name the violence for what it is: white supremacy. The rise of Islamophobia and white supremacist violence targeting racialized and faith-based communities requires an urgent, collective action by all levels of society. We ask the Canadian government to take immediate action to address this growing violence.
Our prayers go out to the victims’ families and loved ones, as well as the London Muslim community who are grieving this loss.
Islamic Relief has launched a campaign to help the nine year old survivor. Anyone wishing to donate can do so here.
