Premeditated attack kills 4 member of a Pakistani-Canadian family


A 20-year-old Canadian terrorist in a premeditated attack killed four members of a Pakistani family using his pickup truck as a weapon, the city of London, Ontario.

46-year-old man, his wife, mother, and teenage daughter were murdered. His nine-year-old son remains in hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The victims’ family has requested the names not be released.

From 2015 to 2019, the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) tracked more than 300 incidents, including more than 30 acts of physical violence. These include a gun attack on the Islamic Cultural Centre of Quebec on 29 January 2017, which left six dead and 19 injured in one of the deadliest mass shootings in Canada’s recent history.

Mosques are vandalised across the United States, local government officials denounce Islam, and state legislatures debate anti-Muslim laws. Such anti-Muslim activities have increased markedly since late 2015. New America, a not-for-profit advocacy group for immigrants, catalogued 763 incidents of hate from 2012 to 2018.

America today faces several strains of extremism, from ISIS-inspired lone wolves to the digitally organised alternative right, commonly known as the “alt-right.”
