Canadian Muslim Community Condemns Terrorist Attack in Lahore,Pakistan
Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at mourns the loss of innocent lives at Gulshan Iqbal Park in Lahore, Pakistan
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at Canada strongly denounces the explosion at a public park in Lahore, Pakistan. Tragically, at least 69 civilians have been reported killed, with many victims being women and children. Hundreds of innocent peoplewere left injured in this horrific act of violence. The attack comes a little more than a year after the brutal 2014 Peshawar school attack, which resulted in the death of more than 150 people, primarily children and recent attack at a University killing over 30 people.
“We are deeply distressed to learn of the gruesome and senseless act of violence in Pakistan,” said Mr. Lal Khan Malik, National President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at Canada. “The innocent victims and their families are in our sincerest thoughts and prayers.”
Ahmadi Muslims across Canada, some of whom have deep ties to Lahore, are mourning with the families and friends of those afflicted by this horrible atrocity.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at prays for swift justice and the speedy recovery of the wounded.
