In solidarity

McMaster students gathered to show support after six worshippers were killed at the Islamic cultural centre of Quebec.

Jan 31, 2017

Last night about 80 Muslim students spontaneously came together to pray at dusk outside of the Burke Science Building. Students spoke about their reactions to the murders in Quebec and their fears, and invited non-Muslim students to attend and witness. Other members of the campus Muslim community saw what was happening in process and walked over and threw a scarf or their coat down and joined in the prayer.
