Watch the National Council of Canadian Muslims' Press Conference Ahead of the Trial for the Murder of Muslim FamilyWritten by National Council of Canadian Muslims
On June 6, 2021, a Muslim family was taken from this earth by the accused London Terror attacker, who struck them with his vehicle.
The youngest son of the family was the only survivor.
This is not the first time that the Muslim community have had someone taken from us in Canada because of hate.
The Quebec City Mosque shooting and the IMO attack remind us of the deadly impact of hate and Islamophobia in Canada.
We will be watching this trial closely.
We ask all of you to keep the Our London Family in your dua and your prayers during this difficult time.
As Aasiyah Khan, Chief Operating Officer, said at the press conference "Ultimately, we are looking for justice for our London family and for our community to feel protected, to feel safe, and to know that our justice system will do what is necessary to deter this from ever happening again."
It is time for Canadians to reflect on the effects of Islamophobic hate and violence.
