Canadian University Introduces Scholarships to Honor Victims of Islamophobic Attack

The Wes­tern University of Ontario, Canada, has introduced new scholarships in honor of the overdue Madiha Salman and Salman Afzaal (her husband) — the victims of a deadly assault in Ontario on 6 June.


The college has delivered the ‘Madiha Salman Memorial Scholarship in Civil and Environmental Engineering and the ‘Sal­guy Afzaal Memorial Scholarship in Physical Therapy’ to honor the couple and to make sure that they may be remembered for embracing inclusion, valuing education, and growing their community.

Essentially, a full-time girl graduate student enrolled in both a doctoral or Master’s software withinside the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, together along with her studies plans centered on environmental engineering will be eligible to receive the Madiha Salman scholarship.


A spokesperson for Madiha’s own circle of relatives stated, “As a Muslim, Madiha strongly believed in inclusivity and so this award will be open to college students who suggest for the inclusion of all races and religions”.

On the alternative hand, the Salman Afzaal Scholarship will be for a full-time graduate student enrolled in both a doctoral or Master’s software in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences.


The Western University President, Alan Shepard, stated that those scholarships which are advocated through the own circle of relatives of the couple will provide comfort and commemoration.
