Victoria's Sikh community shows support for Masjid Al-Iman

Masjid Al-Iman

A special noon-hour event on Friday at Victoria's mosque on Quadra Street -- is being called a gesture of love and solidarity for the Muslim community.

Members of the local Sikh community will form a human protective chain around Masjid Al-Iman, to mark the mass shootings at two mosques in New Zealand one week ago.

The community says bigotry will not be tolerated.

They say the human shield will be a physical barrier of protection for those feeling persecuted and vulnerable following the horrors last week.

On Friday March 15, a 28-yr-old Australian white supremacist killed 50 people at two mosques in ChristChurch, New Zealand.
