The Silk Road Institute is deeply shocked and disturbed by the terrorist attack that took place in a mosque in Sainte-Foy, Quebec, killing 6 people and wounding 19 people.

« It is with shock and sadness that we learn this horrible act of violence. Our thoughts, prayers, and support go to the victims and their families in these difficult times, « said Silk Road Institute President Mohamed Shaheen. « It is important to continue to strengthen the links between citizens and to fight against all forms of prejudice. » 

« We encourage officials, media and experts to transform the discourse on minorities in general and Muslims in particular in our society, » said the Silk Road Institute Vice President, Bochra Manai . « We need speeches that delegitimize hatred and appease tensions. » 

The Silk Road Institute is a Montreal-based organization dedicated to promoting the artistic expression of under-represented communities and Muslims in Quebec and Canadians.
