Refugee Becomes Victim of Horrific Bondi Junction Stabbing Tragedy While Defending Others

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Australia 2 mins read

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Australia expresses profound sadness over the tragic event that unfolded at Westfield Bondi Junction yesterday.


Members of the community will come together at 6pm on Sunday 14th @ Westfield Bondi Junction (500 Oxford St, Bondi Junction NSW 2022) for silent prayers and a vigil commemorating the innocent lives lost during the Westfield Bondi Junction tragedy.


It is with heavy hearts that we also mourn the loss of Faraz Tahir, a cherished member of our community and a dedicated security guard who tragically lost his life while serving the public during this attack.


Faraz Tahir, aged 30, sought refuge in Australia just a year ago, fleeing persecution in his home country of Pakistan. He quickly became an integral part of our community, known for his unwavering dedication and kindness. Faraz was not only a valued member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Australia but also actively contributed to the charitable endeavours of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth organisation.


Our thoughts and prayers are with Faraz's family and loved ones during this difficult time, as well as with all the other victims and their families affected by this senseless act of violence. We extend our deepest condolences and stand in solidarity with the broader community as we come together to support one another in the face of tragedy.


We commend the swift response of the authorities and offer our full cooperation with the ongoing investigation. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Australia remains steadfast in its commitment to promoting peace, unity, and understanding in our society.
