According to the Quebec provincial police, six people have been killed and eight wounded after shots were fired inside a mosque on Sunday night during evening prayers.

According to reports, 39 people were able to escape the Islamic cultural centre of Quebec in the Sainte-Foy neighbourhood without injuries.

Both Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Quebec government have called the shooting an act of terrorism.

So far, two suspects have been arrested.

In a statement, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau condemned the shooting, which he described as a “terrorist attack on Muslims in a centre of worship and refuge”. He said, “Muslim-Canadians are an important part of our national fabric, and these senseless acts have no place in our communities, cities and country.”

      None of these Muslims will come out to condemn these terrorist attacks. I just don’t understand their logic of claiming religion of peace but keep quiet on the atrocity they cause in the world.
      Trudeau better watch how he’s welcoming Muslims to his country. Soon, Canada will be a major target. Other Arab nations should receive their brother and sisters as refugees. Trump is being radical with his anti Muslim which I know it will only trigger these terrorists to come out with more discreet strategic ways to do their evil work.
      Trump get ready and protect America with 10times security.

    So who says there was no possibility of Muslims shooting in their mosque afterall to cause tension? I’m pretty sure people would think it’s non-muslims that would shoot but alas, we might be once again wrong on this!!! Justin Treadeau’s benevolent act might soon get him into trouble. Dear President please don’t bite more than you can chew. Until the mass immigration of the Syrian refugees and Muslims into Canada there was never a known case of this sort of terrorism in Canada. Oh well let’s see where these drama leads us to. One thing I know for sure is you have to be prepared to dine with the devil with a long fork, if you really have to eat with him from the same plate

      Terrorism had happened in Canada, from an American guy to Cuban folks to Turkish groups to even their own citizens. Embassies and consulate offices in Canada have been bombed.

      Honestly, a Google search of “terrorism in Canada” would have educated you

      He is a white guy, French Canadian guy. Stop with this, seriously stop. It was a non-muslim. How can you be this wicked, and this heartless. People died in their place of worship. When Dylann Roof killed church goers in South Carolina, all our prayers were with them. So how dare you.
