Canadian Prime Minister Condemns Mosque Attack in Mississauga

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau strongly condemned an attack on a mosque in Mississauga, Ontario, which is being investigated as a hate crime. The incident occurred on Sunday, with someone throwing two rocks through the mosque’s window on the eve of the anniversary of a 2017 mosque attack in Quebec City that claimed six lives. Thankfully, no injuries were reported in the recent incident.

Trudeau, in a statement on social media, denounced the attack, emphasizing that Islamophobia has no place in Canadian communities. The National Council of Canadian Muslims described the incident as part of a troubling increase in Islamophobic hate across the country.

This comes in the wake of a reported spike in anti-Semitic and anti-Muslim hate crimes in Toronto, particularly since the beginning of Israel’s military offensive in Gaza. The rise in anti-Semitism and Islamophobia globally has been noted by rights advocates since the October 7th attack by the Palestinian group Hamas on Israel. The subsequent military actions by Israel in Gaza have resulted in casualties and displacement, contributing to heightened tensions and hate crimes.
