Standing in solidarity

Madison Erhardt


The Kelowna Islamic Centre held a vigil Saturday afternoon to remember and honour the 50 victims who lost their lives in the New Zealand mosque shooting.

''We need to stand in solidarity for peace and harmony. It has nothing to do with religion. We have groups from all around the community today,'' said Hamid Butt, Islamic Centre director. 

''We want to unite together, look to the future and help each other overcome this grief and manage the loss,'' Butt added. 

The Mosque also hosted an open house Saturday.

The Mosque was open for anyone to learn about Islam and to come and go freely. Everyone was invited," Butt added.
