It has come to our attention that an inappropriate supplication that was offensive to those of Jewish faith, was made in our downtown mosque, Masjid Toronto. Such language is unacceptable and against the values and practices of the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC), Masjid Toronto and the Muslim Community at large. Masjid Toronto condemns all forms of hate and racism towards any faith group or others and is committed to offering a safe spiritual space for all congregants.
Muslim Association of Canada released this statement on the Masjid Toronto incident on Friday, February 17, 2017.
“No Canadian should feel intimidated when walking into their synagogue, church, temple or mosque. We are thankful to our fellow Canadians who joined with us today against this attack on religious freedom and Canadian values.
The safety and security of our worshippers is paramount. We thank Toronto Police Services for their on-going support and their swift attention.
We also thank our fellow Torontonians and Canadians who have expressed their support.”
