According to police sources, five people were injured in a mosque shooting this Easter Weekend in Scarborough, a suburb of Toronto. None were reported as being killed.

“We are unable to say whether the victims were targeted because of their religious beliefs,” stated Toronto Police spokesperson David Rydzik. Last month, the leader of a mosque in Mississauga, stated a man who attacked congregants with an axe “hated Muslims.” Dar Al-Tawheed Islamic Centre Imam Ibrahim Hindy says the man yelled out that he was there to “kill terrorists” during the attack on March 19, 2022.

“Mohammad Moiz Omar, 24, faces several charges including assault with a weapon, administering a noxious substance with intent to endanger life and uttering threats. Police have said the incident is believed to be motivated by hate.”
