Created: Wednesday, June 09, 2021
Flags at all Town of Newmarket and Central York Fire Services buildings are flying at half-mast on June 10 in memory of the Afzaal family who were targeted and killed because of their Islamic faith.
“Sunday’s senseless attack on a London family as we are now learning was fueled by hatred. This act of terrorism can not be tolerated and we must all work together to stand against hatred and prejudice.” says Mayor John Taylor “Newmarket sends our sincerest condolences and joins the rest of the country in mourning the loss of the four members of the Afzaal family, and we hope Fayez Afzaal has a quick recovery as he heals in hospital.”
The Town of Newmarket condemns this tragic act of hate and stands in solidarity with the Muslim community.
