Hamilton Muslims condemn terrorist attacks in Paris, Beirut, Baghdad and Ankara – Expresses condolences to the families of the victims.
(Hamilton – November 15, 2015) The Muslim Council of Greater Hamilton, a council representing nine Muslim organizations and mosques in the Greater Hamilton area, condemns Friday’s horrific and despicable terrorist attacks in Paris, France, as well as recent terrorist attacks in Beirut, Baghdad and Ankara. All these attacks were perpetrated by the same terrorist and criminal entity – ISIS.
In a statement, the MCGH said:
“Canadians are expressing deep shock and sharing in the immense grief felt around the world at the tragic events this week in Paris, Beirut and Baghdad and last month in Ankara. The MCGH continues to categorically condemn these horrific attacks and all acts of violent extremism and terrorism wherever and whenever they occur. There is no justification of any kind for such criminal acts.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of France, Lebanon, Iraq and Turkey, and with the families of those killed and injured, as well as with the first responders and security officials who will be working to track down those responsible in order to swiftly bring the perpetrators to justice.”
