Bošnjačka islamska zajednica u Kanadi

Saopćenje povodom besmislenih ubistava vjernika u Islamskom centru u Quebec-u

Bošnjačka islamska zajednica u Kanadi duboko je ožalošćena i šokirana nedavnim besmislenim ubistvima vjernika u Islamskom kulturnom centru u Quebec City-ju.

U ovome strašnome aktu terora ubijeni su nevini Kanađani u svome vjerskome objektu. I dok se molimo za sve one koji su izgubili svoje živote, povrijeđene i njihove najmilije, pozivamo sve Kanađane da zajedno ustanu protiv islamofobije i ksenofobije u svim njihovim oblicima.

Dok Vlada i snage za sprovođenje zakona Quebec-a poduzimaju mjere protiv onih koji su počinili ove zločine iz mržnje, mi pozivamo kanadsku muslimansku zajednicu koja bi se mogla naći pod udarom islamofobije da prijave sve akte mržnje vladinim institucijama za sprovođenje zakona te skrenu pažnju na njih svojim sugrađanima.

Kao Kanađani, Bošnjacaci iz Bosne i Hercegovine, koje je ova velika zemlja prihvatila kao izbjeglice nakon što su izmakli agresiji, protjerivanju, etničkom čišćenju i genocidu u svojoj domovini prije više od dvije decenije (1992-’95.), mi znamo koliko tragedije može donijeti slijepa mržnja, ekstremni nacionalizam i vjerski fanatizam.

Nemojmo zaboraviti da smo svi mi Kanađani i da nas ova tragedija veže sve zajedno. Ponovo potvrdimo našu posvečenost vrijednostima kanadskoga pluralizma, živjeći zajedno u miru i prosperitetu, i ne dozvolimo nikome da nas dijeli mržnjom i nasiljem.

Bosniac Muslim Community in Canada

Statement on Senseless Killings of Worshipers at the Islamic Center of Quebec

The Bosnian Muslim Community in Canada is deeply grieved and shocked at last night’s senseless killings of worshippers at the Islamic Cultural Centre of Quebec in Quebec City.

Innocent Canadians have been murdered in their place of worship and refuge by this terrible act of terror. As we pray for those who have lost their lives, the injured and their loved ones, we ask all fellow Canadians to stand together against Islamophobia and xenophobia in all their forms.

As Quebec government and law enforcement officials take action against those who have committed these hate crimes we call upon the Canadian Muslim community who may experience Islamophobia to report acts of hate and bring them to the attention of the government, the law enforcement and our fellow citizens.

As Canadians from Bosnian Muslim origin (Bosniaks) who have been embraced as refugees in this great country after having escaped aggressive war, persecution, ethnic cleansing and genocide in their homeland more than two decades ago (1992-‘95) we know how much tragedy can be brought because of blind hatred, extreme nationalism and religious fanatism.

Let us not forget that we are all Canadians and we are all bound by this tragedy together. Let us reaffirm our commitment to the values of Canadian pluralism, living together in peace and prosperity and not allow anyone to divide us through hatred and violence.
