    Madiha Salman, 44
    Salman Afzaal, 46
    Yumna Afzaal (their daughter), 15
    Mr Afzaal's mother, 74

    They are survived by the son, 9.

    They were murdered by a 20 year old Islamophobic white supremacist in London, Ontario.

    Didn't see a thread about this horrific attack. If the perpetrator was Muslim rather than the victims, you can be sure the usual cohort here would have been falling over themselves in the rush to post their "thoughts."

    May the victims rest in peace.

    Seems like you're in the mood for a row.

    Anyway, poor family, poor boy.

    Nope, just stating the obvious. And thought the tragedy was worth acknowledging.

    Terrible thing to happen. If proven it was race based I'd imagine a domestic terrorist attack could be added to the charge sheet?

    It's not really surprising though when Islamic savages are constantly committing terror atrocities in the West that a white person is going to do the same thing in retaliation. Yes it's awful and shouldn't happen but it's a direct result of liberal politicians immigration policies which are bad for both the immigrants and the non immigrant population.

    You won't see too many terror attacks in Japan, Poland or Hungary these days. Because these countries are homogenous meaning there are not racial tensions amongst the population and there is a high level of social cohesion.

    You love to see the absolutely ignorance. Beautiful sight to see

    There must be some kind of threat if UK government have a website section for 1 of those you listed

    That didn't take long. Thanks for proving my point.

    Okay that appears to be a generic warning placed on almost all European countries.

    So next time there is an attack in the West it will be OK to post something similar?
    It's not really surprising though when Christian savages are constantly committing terror atrocities in the middle east that an islamic (brown? Does colour matter?) person is going to do the same thing in retaliation. Yes it's awful and shouldn't happen but it's a direct result of western foreign policies which are bad

    Let's agree that ethnic cleansing isn't an option*. What's your solution for non ethnically homogenous countries?


    I hope you don't see it as an option

    Canada is completely built on immigration no point in comparing it to Poland or Japan. Funally enough it wasnt Islamic savages responsible for 100s of dead native Canadian children that was in the news recently, it was our good old Catholic brethern.

    It's even more ironic considering that it was a bunch of (white Christian) immigrants who were responsible for their deaths. I bet that somehow doesn't count, though.

    Truly horrible incident. Terrible to see an entire family wiped out like that.

    Just for once, maybe posters on both sides of the culture wars could agree not lean into their usual ideologies, whether that’s anti-immigration, anti-Catholicism or whatever.

    Chances of that happening with previous posts... nil.

    It's not really surprising though when Western government savages are constantly committing illegal invasions in the Middle East in the name of democracy that a person from there who may have lost their family, their home etc is going to retaliate. Yes it's awful and shouldn't happen but it's a direct result of right wing politicial hawks foreign policies, you reap what you sow!

    As for no racial tension in Poland, Hungary etc…pull your head out of The Telegraphs hole!!!

    Only 91 minutes into the day and we might have a winner for the most ignorant post of the day.

    I bet a lot of them had Irish names too if the RC chuch was involved.
    My point is we're all equally horrible, so that who said Islamic savages in an earlier post is just being a dick.

    Very sad, a family wiped out and a little boy left orphaned and traumatised I’m sure. No excuse for it, just a horrible excuse for a human being exacting some kind of misplaced justice or vengeance.

    I don’t think it’s less horrific due to the victims religion or ethnicity, I think this stuff has become so common, everyone is just becoming indifferent to it. Crazy as that sounds.

    So, given that you appear to think that that is relevant, what are you saying - that it is grand for a "native person" to kill a few immigrants now because some then relatively recent immigrants (in terms of generations) buried ethnically indigenous children in the past?


    That is a bit messed up if you ask me!



    The person responsible for this should be locked up for life immediately.

    White supremacist terror attacks do not receive the same coverage, when other groups commit violence. It results in a skewed view of the world, when violence is downplayed when white supremacists commit it.

    Also, conservatives in Canada blocked a condemnation of Islamophobia right after the attack:

    Liberal leader outraged after Ford government blocks motion to condemn Islamophobia


    This is typical of conservatives these days. They fan the flames and pretend to be innocent of incitement, when they refuse to condemn this type of hatred.

    Remember one of the reasons a lot of social media can't get rid of white supremacists, is that it would result in the removal of mainstream conservatives, who are basically indistinguishable from white supremacists to the algorithm.

    Things that are perceived to be more of a threat to you and those close to you will get more coverage. It's not a conspiracy.

    It’s not a conspiracy, that would imply it’s hidden somehow when it’s right out in the open.

    I know. That is why I pulled him up on it.




    Thread is about a family that was murdered recently. I have no idea why other poster is trying to drag it off topic and muddy the waters with that wholly irrelevant strawman.
