We are heartbroken at Hamilton Downtown Islamic School at the tragic loss of four members of a Muslim family in London as a result of hate crime. Hamilton Downtown Islamic School staff stand in solidarity with community at this difficult time while praying for the family.
This is the time we strengthen ourselves and unite against Islamophobia since our children may feel scared and unsafe after this horrific incident.
I have been receiving condolence emails from other Faith and learning communities for the Muslim family in grief. These messages show their respect for our Faith and school community.
May Allah protect every one and give the surviving child and relatives strength to cope with irreparable loss.
