An attack in southern Ontario that sent a Muslim man to hospital appears to have been motivated by hate, police said Wednesday, as his family tried to come to grips with the incident.

The incident has drawn the attention of various Muslim groups, including the National Council of Canadian Muslims.
“We are extremely appalled by this horrific assault and our thoughts and prayers are with the victim, their family and the local Muslim community,” Ihsaan Gardee, executive director of the council, said in a statement.
“Such hateful and cowardly acts are abhorrent to all Canadians.”
