The following letter was published by The Globe and Mail, on Dec. 29, 2014.

I was born in Peshawar. My wife studied at this very same school where these innocents were martyred. Since the age of 2, Canada has been my home and I’m very glad it has. It’s given me the opportunity to excel in my education, the most powerful tool for any religion.

A great Islamic figure, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, said it best: “Religion is worth the name only so long as it is in consonance with reason. If it fails to satisfy that requisite, if it has to make up for its discomfiture in argument by handling the sword, it needs no other argument for its falsification. The sword it wields cuts its own throat before reaching others.”

Dear parents and loved ones of the dearly departed, strive to be patient. Your strength will become a source of strength.

Muneer Ahmad Khan, Ottawa
