The British Columbia Muslim Association is gravely concerned after an incident that took place outside  a Surrey mosque.

As Ramadan worshippers were exiting evening prayers, wearing traditional clothing, a vehicle sped up to the worshippers. A substance was thrown at the individuals from the car. The car sped away, but then returned and repeatedly feigned trying to run them over.


In a series of tweets, the national Muslim council says it’s calling on political leaders, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and B.C. Premier John Horgan, to prioritize challenging Islamophobia.
