-For Immediate Release-
(January 12, 2015) The Canadian Council of Muslim Women (CCMW) condemns the heinous attacks at the offices of Charlie Hebdo and the kosher market in Paris, France.
Members of CCMW express support for the families of the innocent victims. Words are inadequate in expressing our horror and our sorrow.
CCMW condemns the actions of the attackers as violence has no place in a civilized society. In these difficult moments, we feel that reactions to the deadly attacks in Paris should not be a platform to inflame discrimination, racism, and Islamophobia.
Let’s join people of all faiths in advocating for freedom, compassion and unity.
