The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Canberra stands in solidarity with Jewish Americans in particular & the Jewish community across the world and Australia in general as a second cemetery in the last two weeks was vandalised in the USA. This act is cowardly and unconscionable!

Reports indicate that over 100 gravestones were damaged and overturned at the Mt. Carmel Cemetery in Philadelphia, PA a week after more than 100 gravestone were damaged at a Jewish cemetery in St Louis, Missouri.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is deeply troubled by these rising and ongoing attacks on our Jewish brothers and sisters. The members from our Philadelphia chapter have already assisted in the clean-up at the subject sites. We call upon all Australians to stand united against this hatred and extremism.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has experienced similar attacks and acts of vandalism on their graveyards in the past hence the community can relate to these incidents and the grief our Jewish brothers and sisters are currently experiencing. We hope that the perpetrators of the cemetery vandalism will be brought to justice. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is ready to serve and protect our Jewish brothers and sisters against acts of intolerance and hatred, and pray for their safety.
