Grandmother, father, mother & daughter are killed with 9 year old boy left fighting for his life after man hits them with his truck because they were muslims



Four members of a Muslim family were killed on Sunday, June 6 and a nine-year-old boy left fighting for his life after a 20-year-old man plowed his pickup truck into them due to their Muslim faith.


The family who had immigrated from Pakistan 14 years ago, were attacked in London, Ontario, Candad - a city of 500,000 with a Muslim population of around 30,000.






The driver, Nathaniel Veltman, chose his victims at random and targeted them because of their faith, police said - ramming his black pickup into the family as they went on an evening stroll.



He was arrested immediately after and now faces four counts of first-degree murder.


A councilor in Brampton, Ontario, Gurpreet Singh Dhillon, tweeted: 'My prayers are with the City of London, Ontario following the heinous hate crime that took place against an innocent Muslim family. I stand in solidarity with our Muslim brothers and sisters across Canada who are mourning this loss. #Islamophobia & hate have no place here.'
