To Allah we belong and to Him is our Return. إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ

Our sincere condolences go out to the family of Ejaz Choudry who was fatally shot by Peel police. We join with many in the GTA who are calling for an inquiry into police action, as the victim was not a threat to anyone but himself. May Allah forgive him, overlook his mistakes and grant him a better place in paradise. May Allah grant his family patience in this time of severe distress, and courage to pursue the cause of justice. The sentiments expressed by one of his nephews speak volumes about the incident:

“He has four kids and these guys went into the back like it was hostage situation and they killed him. He was in his own house where he felt safe and they broke into his house and they killed him … The whole family pleaded with police. The whole building witnessed this.”

“He was in his house, that’s his house. He’s allowed to be in his house. He wasn’t a harm to himself either, even if he was, you guys ended up killing him. You guys went in to save him? That’s not saving. That’s murder.”
