Hussein Hamdani says federal election politics behind his suspension

A Hamilton lawyer who has been suspended as an adviser on Muslim issues and security for the federal government says his removal is politically motivated because he is supporting Justin Trudeau and the Liberals.

Minister of Public Safety Steven Blaney suspended Hussein Hamdani from the Cross-Cultural Roundtable on National Security this week.

Blaney’s office is looking into questions raised by the French TVA network about politically charged statements it alleges Hamdani made as a university student, and allegations about radical organizations that it says Hamdani had associations with.

Blaney’s office did not explain why it was taking the action now, when it acknowledges it has known about the allegations for “some time”…

…The TVA report says Hamdani’s contribution to a 1996 document for groups hoping to start a Muslim Student Association on their campus was titled “Islamization [sic] of campus politics.” He advocated for Muslim students to sway decisions on issues like same-sex marriage.

“It is the duty of the MSA to bring morality back into the campus. For example, the Student Union should not have to debate over endorsing legislation in favor of same-sex benefits, this issue should clearly be seen as immoral and thus voted against or ignored.”

Hamdani told CBC Hamilton his views on that issue have evolved and the document is only about participating in the democratic process…

We posted on him earlier here.

    He was also involved in an immigrant services organisation in Hamilton that was shut down over rampant fraud. Over a million dollars worth. He’s quite the winner.

    • Yes he’s been around.

        He was defending the lead fraudster if I remember correctly. He just oozed sleaze and self promotion in the papers. Always pay attention to your gut feelings.

    A Muzzie who supports Justin Trudeau and the Liberals?!?!?!?

    Well knock me over with a feather!!!

    • He’s also down with same sex marriage, a turn around from earlier belief on the subject, which means he really isn’t a Muslim or….

    Public Safety Canada sees him as a “security risk”. And Petey on this thread says that his immigration consulting service was involved with fraud.

    And Elections Canada records say that the good Hamdani contributed $609.72 to the federal Liberals in 2007, $500. in 2008, $250 I 2012 and $1200 to the Justin Trudeau Liberal nomination campaign in 2012. So he fits the bill to be a good pro-Trudeau supporter..
