Published in News

On January 29th, 2017, six Muslims were murdered at the Islamic Cultural Centre of Quebec City, a mosque in the Sainte-Foy neighbourhood of Quebec City, Canada.

Six people were killed including Ibrahima Barry (aged 39), Mamadou Tanou Barry (aged 42), Khaled Belkacemi (aged 60), Aboubaker Thabti (aged 44), Abdelkrim Hassane (aged 41) and Azzedine Soufiane (aged 57)

Nineteen others were injured, including Aymen Derbali, who is now paralysed. Dawanet is currently fundraising in order to secure him an accessible home where he can live with his wife and children.

DawaNet hold film screenings across Canada of their documentary "Your Last Walk in the Mosque", a documentary about the impact of the Quebec mosque attack on the families of those who died and the Muslim community in Quebec City.

These film screenings, along with other vigils, lectures, and gatherings are taking place across Canada to commemorate the Quebec Mosque Shooting and to discuss the issue of anti-Muslim bigotry and violence in Canada.
