Yasmin Khan, who is a close friend of the Muslim family that was targeted in a hate-motivated, Islamophobic attack in London, Ontario, has requested people to not share the victims’ pictures on social media.
The pre-meditated act of terrorism has left four Muslim family members of Pakistani origin martyred, leaving behind a 9-year-old hospitalized with serious injuries.
Khan, who had known the family for long has requested media and people of the internet to request the victims’ privacy in these grieving times.
She took to Instagram to post a heartfelt note for the family that lost members of three generations in a horrific act of Islamophobic violence.
Yasmin wrote about her relationship with all of them, and how much she adored and respected them. How Madiha and Salman (two of the victims) were such pure, forgiving souls.
She also spoke of the grandmother’s paintings, and how she loved her art. How Madiha and Salman’s daughter was always brimming, and the fun things they would do together.
Khan also prayed for the 9-year-old’s recovery.
She cannot come to terms with what happened to all of them, and the kind of barbarianism that terrorist depicted by running them over.
Lastly, she requested everyone to make dua for them, and not share their photos anywhere.
