Other voices on Hebdo attack

The following letter was published by Edmonton Sun, on Jan. 8, 2015.

As an Ahmadi Muslim, I strongly condemn the attack on Charlie Hebdo which has claimed the lives of a dozen individuals in Paris. This event occurred just a few months after the tragic killing of our Canadian soldiers, Patrice Vincent and Nathan Cirillo. The wounds of that tragedy had still not healed and now we had to hear about this tragic event in Paris.

The leader of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad states, “Islam is completely against compulsion and extremism; rather, it advocates peace and harmony at all levels of society.” I hope and pray that the perpetrators of the terrorist attack in Paris are brought to Justice and may the bereaved families of the victims find solace.

Luqman Ahmad
