The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Canada categorically and unequivocally condemns this morning’s terror attacks on the Canadian Parliament and the National War Memorial as well as on the Canadian soldiers in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, a press release said today.
 
Here is the full statement:
These acts of terror have no basis in any religion. Our thoughts and prayers are with the deceased and we offer our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of the soldier who gave his life in today’s attacks in Ottawa as well as the soldier who was killed earlier in the week in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec.
 

As Canadians, we pray that God Almighty protect all Canadians from harm and that these terrorists are brought to justice. The Khalifa of Islam, Mirza Masroor Ahmad, has stated that Ahmadi Muslims should become Ambassadors of peace, and continue to influence others with their loyalty to their nation, love for mankind, and service to humanity. Mr. Lal Khan Malik, National President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Canada, said, “I’m shocked and strongly denounce these heinous attacks on the lives of those who dedicate themselves to protect our great nation.”
