Toronto Sun: M-103 could morph into something unrecognizable

Ever since I (and, of course, many others) began warning about the threat to free speech posed by Mississauga Liberal MP Iqra Khalid’s M-103, I have received counterarguments from a hundred or more supporters of the motion that calls on the federal government to root out Islamophobia wherever it is found. On Tuesday, for instance, I was a guest on the CBC Radio morning show, The Current, hosted by Anna Maria Tremonti. Taking Khalid’s side was Faisal Kutty, a Canadian-trained law professor from Valparaiso University in Indiana. Several points were made with which I disagreed, but one in particular was illustrative of the one-sided thinking of the pro-M-103 side. After arguing it was wrong to

CJN: Jewish-Muslim Group Asks Trudeau To Defeat Motion Condemning Islamophobia

An interfaith group is calling on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to defeat a private member’s motion that condemns Islamophobia and calls on Parliament to develop a strategy to eliminate it. David Nitkin and Tariq Khan, co-chairs of Muslim Jewish Dialogue of Toronto, wrote letters to Trudeau Feb. 7 saying motion M-103, which has not passed Parliament, and Petition E-411, which has, “are antithetical to the Canadian values we cherish.” “Like all religious groups, Muslims are already protected under our Charter of Rights and Freedoms and criminal law. They do not need a separate law which is supported by groups that have close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and in essence are trying to put in p

National Post - Barbara Kay: How long until my honest criticism of Islamism constitutes a speech cri

Words matter. We’ve heard the dictum often since the Quebec City mosque massacre. Yes, they do. In fact, the statement “words matter” matters. In my experience it is either a rebuke to those who argue for the widest possible latitude in speech freedoms, or a preamble to proposing speech limitations. Timing matters too. Because of the mosque tragedy, on Feb. 16, the House will likely vote unanimously for Motion 103, which is potentially a retrograde step for freedom of speech in Canada, at least insofar as it concerns “Islamophobia.” M-103 asks for a study to determine “a whole-of-government approach to reducing or eliminating systemic racism and religious discrimination including Islamophob

Letter from Tariq Khan to the Prime Minister

In my capacity of being the Co- Chair of the Moslem Jewish Dialogue in Toronto , I and our Muslim sisters and brothers who are the participants of the MJD expressed our strong opinion against Sharia Law and the related activities. Sunni and Shia Imams also participated. We are of the opinion that in CANADA there should be no other law except the Canadian Law. It is true that certain Imams are promoting polygamy with cunning tricks. Muslims must abide the Canadian Values. On behalf of the Moslem participants of the MJD , I fully endorse the opinion expressed by our Co-Chair David Nitkin. It is true that here in the GTA certain IMAMS are preaching hatred, promoting and performing mut'ah mar

Letter from David Nitkin to The Prime Minister

Dear Prime Minister, I write to you as my Prime Minister on a matter that has many of my Muslim, Jewish and secular friends very apprehensive. I co-lead the Moslem Jewish Dialogue in Toronto. Most of my Muslim friends in the Dialogue fear Sharia blasphemy laws. They and I are afraid of certain Islamic religious extremists here in Toronto who would gain protection from this motion for their abuse of religious rights and human freedoms for women, gays, and both Muslims and non-Muslims. Many imams deserve our respect and support. But three in the GTA preach hatred, teach hatred, and perform mut'ah marriage. When the Muslims in our Dialogue see you visit and have your picture taken with thos
