The Coalition of Progressive Canadian Muslim Organizations (CPCMO) Condemns Terror Attacks in Montreal and Ottawa

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 24, 2014) - The Coalition of Progressive Canadian Muslim Organizations (CPCMO) joins the nation in mourning the deaths of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and Patrice Vincent to cowardly acts of terrorism.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the fallen soldiers and those injured in the attacks. CPCMO condemns these acts of terrorism and expresses its revulsion at these acts of terrorism inspired by ISIS ideology.

Both attackers, Ahmad Martin Rouleau and Abdullah Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, were new converts to Islam and had criminal records, and were radicalized.

It was the promptness and bravery of our security forces that prevented even greater death and destruction.

We call on all Muslim Canadians to condemn these attacks on our society and to help expose and eradicate Jihadi elements.

CPCMO also calls all political parties to come together to rid this country of poisons ideology of extremist Islamic groups that are intent on harming Canada.
