Press communiqué of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue on the attack in Québec, Canada, 30.01.2017

The Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue has learned with deep sadness and indignation of the brutal attack against Muslim faithful while in prayer in Québec City, in their place of worship.

This meaningless gesture has violated the sanctity of human life, and the respect due to a community in prayer and their place of worship.

The Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue strongly condemns this act of unprecedented violence, and wishes to convey its fullest solidarity with the Muslims of Canada, assuring them of fervent prayers for the victims and their families.
