Muslim organization commends the efforts of Security forces

 TORONTO, June 5 /CNW/ - ICNA Canada, a national organization of Canadian
Muslims, joins other fellow Canadians in commending the efforts of our
security forces to combat terrorism in Canada. ICNA Canada condemns terrorism
in all of its forms and believes that it should be dealt appropriately.
 National security is a top most priority for all of us and we urge all
Canadians, including the Muslim community, to cooperate with the security
forces to combat all forms of terrorism. However we urge and hope that
authorities will take due care in making sure that innocent individuals are
not subjected to serious allegations of terrorism, in this regard.
 Canadian Muslims also asked the authorities to make sure that Muslim
Community does not become the target of any backlash or hostility in the
perspective of these unfortunate events. ICNA Canada has confidence that our
justice system will accord these individuals transparency of due process and
the presumption of innocence.
