Ottawa : Muslim community in Quebec expressed concerns over hateful posters hung on the walls of three mosques out of five in the city last weekend.
In surveillance camera footage obtained by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, two men could be seen putting up posters on the walls of the mosques overnight, calling Muslims to go home.
“Muslims are worried about their lives and their interaction with the community,” Imam of Laval University mosque Saeed Al-Amari said, adding that they were forced to remain vigilant.
Locals believe that these backlashes are inevitably linked to the recent two separate attacks on Canadian soldiers in Saint-Jean-Sur-Richelieu and Ottawa.
City police confirmed they have received complaints at the weekend, and that they are currently investigating the incidents.
