Ahmadiyya Muslims holding rally in Saskatoon to condemn Ottawa shooting

Muslim group Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at among many which have condemned the Ottawa shootings

Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Canada issued a statement saying the group “categorically and unequivocally condemns” the attacks in Ottawa and Quebec.

In a statement announcing the rally, the group said the goal of the rally is to “stand shoulder to shoulder with fellow Canadians and categorically and unequivocally condemn radicalization and all acts of terror.”

The rally is set for 2 to 3 p.m. CST at Saskatoon City Hall, on 3rd Avenue North.

Many Canadian Muslim groups have condemned the two deadly attacks this week, saying the incidents have no connection to Islam or its beliefs.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Students’ Association (AMSA) is also hosting an event called Stop the CrISIS to educate about youth radicalization and the dangerous impacts of extremist views.
