The Canadian parliament has approved a motion to ‘condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination.’
“Extremist Muslims who came here as refugees are making preparations to turn Canada into a nightmare,” popular TV host Asif Javaid said in an online post.
The motion was introduced by Liberal MP Iqra Khalid in the wake of the January massacre at a Quebec City mosque that killed six Muslims.
Many in the mosque establishment and right-wing Islamic groups in Canada are celebrating this as a victory.
But Muslim critics of the so-called “Motion 103,” which mentions only Islamophobia by name and not any other form of religious persecution, are in disbelief that so few members of parliament have objected to this giant step backward and the watering down of our freedom of expression.
Javaid said the move “echoes the agenda of Islamists and Islamic extremists in North America who are shamelessly taking advantage of the Quebec City tragedy to advance the international Muslim Brotherhood agenda to silence any critique of Islamism.”
