South Nepean Muslim Community (SNMC) is ineffably saddened by the loss of lives from the shooting at Toronto’s Danforth Avenue, and stands in solidarity with all the victims of this senseless act, along with the rest of Canada and the world. Islam views the taking of a single life as the equivalent of the killing of all humanity, and nothing can ever justify murder.
SNMC is a community that upholds Islamic and Canadian values, and stands against all forms of hate and bigotry. We are committed to helping those in need regardless of their faith, culture and ethnic backgrounds. To that effect, SNMC has donated $5000 to help the grieving families (via Islamic Relief Canada) and encourages others to donate as well.
