DTT: Islamic religious leaders, the Imams in Canada have come out to strongly condemn the barbaric killing of innocent people in Orlando. Their prayers and thoughts are with the victims and their families during these hard times.

Canadian Council of Imams statement:

The Canadian Council of Imams (CCI) strongly condemns the mass shooting in Orlando this morning. Our prayers and thoughts are with the victims and their families. We applaud the efforts of first responders in treating the wounded and injured and call on authorities to bring any one involved in this terrible crime to justice.

The CCI makes it very clear that human life is sacred in Islam and that protecting it is one of the primary objectives of the religion.

”The safety and well-being of our neighbours and fellow citizens must always be respected and protected, regardless of their race, religion, ethnicity, personal persuasions, sexual orientation or political affiliations. We strongly condemn all acts of violence, particularly those motivated by racism and homophobia.”

The CCI reiterates the following from its national declaration:

”Islam is a religion of nature and humanity, one that teaches that a person cannot be a good Muslim until he/she becomes a good human being. All human beings are equal, and all of them are the children of Adam and Eve (peace be upon them). The best Muslim is the one who is good to his/her family and neighbors and one who avoids harming others with his/her hand or tongue.”
