Two ball-hockey-playing brothers were attacked by opposing players and spectators because of their religion, their father says.
Ahmed Buksh says his sons, Elijah, 21, and Izaiah, 20, were playing at the BCIT gym Sunday in a tournament put on by the B.C. Muslim Sports Association.
“It was a targeted attack on two boys — I never saw anything like it,” Buksh said yesterday.
“It was just disgusting. They believe we are non-Muslim. At the end of the day, that is the cause.”
Buksh said he and his sons are Muslims, but do not follow the Sunni branch of the religion, which, he says, the sports association favours.
