The British Columbia Muslim Association condemns in the strongest terms the atrocious
attacks at various churches and hotels in Sri Lanka during the last Easter weekend.
This heinous attack killed about 300 innocent lives and wounded about 500. These
acts of terrorism does not adhere with any religious principles, nor are these actions
in compatible with any form of human and moral values. We stand by the good people
of Sri Lanka during this difficult times and pray for the innocent victims.
The Quran set the ground rules for human relationships as, " O mankind , indeed
We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you
may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the
most righteous of you. indeed, Allah is knowing and Acquainted. " 49-13.
Our prayers are with our Christian faith communities, neighbours, family and friends
who are grieving at this most sacred time of Easter on the Christian calendar
