Canadian Muslim Community Condemns Murder of Robert Hall
Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at mourns the loss of fellow Canadian in the Philippines
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at Canada denounces the killing of Robert Hall, who was held hostage in the Philippines since September 2015. This tragic incident came less than two months after the brutal killing of John Ridsdel, who was held captive alongside Robert Hall in the Philippines.
“This is a devastating moment for the family of Mr. Robert Hall and for all Canadians,” said Mr. Lal Khan Malik, National President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at Canada. “The news of killing in the peaceful month of Ramadan is particularly painful for the Muslim Community. The innocent victim and his family are in our heartfelt thoughts and prayers during Ramadan.”
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at prays for the safety of the remaining hostages and hopes the authorities capture those responsible for this brutal act and bring them to justice.
