A Canadian mosque in Mississauga is offering a chocolate spread to help ease the tension after an explosion last week left three people dead.
A statement posted to Facebook by the mosque says the spread was distributed to residents of the city in response to the explosion in Mississaugas mosque.
The Islamic Society of Canada said in a statement it is “deeply saddened by the loss of life and the impact that this tragedy has had on our community.”
The Islamic Society also posted a picture of a chocolate “spread” that had been placed inside the mosque’s bulletin board.
It said the spread is made of polystyrene and is a mixture of chocolate, milk chocolate and a bit of chocolate powder.
“We are deeply saddened by these tragic events,” the statement said.
“We ask that you take care of your loved ones, as we pray for all of those affected by this tragic event.”
The mosque says in the statement that the spread will be distributed at its Toronto branch as well as in other parts of the country.
