To support the Muslim family killed in truck attack in Canada, thousands march

After the recent killing of a Muslim Family in Ontario, Canada there has been an uproar by people. The police have arrested a 20-year-old Nathaniel Veltman who run the family over with his pickup truck. He has been booked on four charges of first-degree murder and one of attempted murder. This attack was described as a hate crime by the Canadian police.

The four victims spanned across three generations of the family and were on an evening walk when the incident took place. One member who has also injured in the accident was a 9-year-old boy, who has managed to survive.

The people of London, Ontario are not happy with what happened and are being very vocal about it. They have marched 7 kilometers from where the family was hit by the truck to a mosque nearby. Some made signs with messages while some carried placards reading “hate has no home here” referring to London, Ontario as home and “lover over hate.”

A 19-year-old student from London, Ontario, Abdullah Al Jarad said that the best part of the march was not the numbers but the diverse amount of people that took part in the march as every single community present in London was together for this cause. The prime minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau has called the killings a “terrorist attack” and swore to shut down far-right groups and online hate.
