The shocking incident of six men being shot and killed in a Quebec mosque has brought all communities closer, say Peel region faith leaders.
Soon after the shocking news spread, Mississauga imam Shaykh Ibrahim Hussain received a condolence message from his longtime friend and pastor of Brampton’s Heart Lake Papist Church, Dr. Terry Atkinson.
Atkinson’s message was to comfort his friend and make him realize that the Christian community is with Muslims in that difficult time.
“(The Quebec mosque shooting) was such as tragedy,” said Atkinson. “This incident has brought all faiths closer.”
