NDP Candidate Bill Sundhu tells mosque attendees Conservatives are ‘fear-mongering’

TRU_speaker_iman_mayzhal_VERT_RGB_-copyImam Mazhar Mahmood moved to the Kamloops Ayesha Mosque in Knutsford earlier this year. Born and raised in Toronto, he oversees a community of about 60 Muslim families and as many as 400 students attending Thompson Rivers University.

Bill Sundhu, the NDP candidate for Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo, told a group of Muslims gathered at the Knutsford mosque on Friday that the Conservative party is “fear-mongering and running on coded language” as it moved to pass Bill C-51 before the October federal election

Sundhu also accused the federal Liberals, who are supporting the bill in its principle, of turning their backs on the Constitution brought in by Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau’s father, former Grit prime minister Pierre Trudeau.

Sundhu spoke in the the mosque to an all-male group of about 60 congregants gathered to hear Sundhu before a regular prayer. A handful of women were gathered upstairs, where the speech was heard via microphone.

“Human rights don’t belong to a government,” Sundhu said. “They don’t belong to a king and queen. They belong to people.”

Sundhu took speciality training in the area of human-rights law. He said Western governments’ targeting of minorities and Muslims, in particular, can be seen in everyday occurrences: being stopped at the airport based on skin colour, for example…

  • Here is some “fear-mongering” (viewer discretion is advised):

      There’s much to fear about Islam.

      • Let’s air-lift Mr. Sundhu to Pakistan.

          Screw the airfare and fuel costs, Canada used to excel in long range Artillery we should send them home via Big Bertha.

    I seem to recall that women? wearing niqab are being waved through airport terminals. This guy is trying to sell the victim narrative. I am not buying.

    They’re invading the Interior, too? I mean, its crawling with you-know-who’s around here, but KAMLOOPS? Horrible. 🙁

    • Rosenmops

      Oh yes. I assume Sundhu is a Sikh, or which there are a few in Kamloops, but not too many. But the university here keeps importing Muslims as professors and students–that is how most of them come. We get a lot of students from Soddy Barbaria. They bring their wives and have anchor babies. The university is also importing a lot of Nigerians. Kamloops is starting to get vibrant.

        Retire to the Island. The ferry trip discourages most of the enrichers.

        • Rosenmops

          Oh I’ve noticed a few of them when I visit there. Aren’t they building a mosque in Victoria? They spread everywhere like cockroaches.

          • Frau Katze

            Yes, they’re building one downtown. For university students.

            My area is still fairly free of them. Haven’t been downtown lately. I’m sure the university is infested.

        • Maggat

          So far so good.

    Somebody should explain to Bill Sundhu the meaning of the word ‘sedition’, preferably after he’s been read his rights. He might be entitled to free speech but he’s not entitled to fact-free speech with the intent of promoting racial tension. He’s no better than a neo-nazi and it’s time these socialist bastards were held to the same standards they hold everyone else to.

    • mobuyus

      I’d settle for holding them under water.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    And what’s with women confined to an upstairs area out of sight? Human rights my ass.

  • Gary

    No doubt the Liberals supported that homophobic jew-hating mosque Justin visited where he put on the islamic costume and pretended to be a muslim just for the votes.
    Peace at any price.

    Kamloops have a long history of nourishing extremism & harboring terrorists. Of my head I could remember notably two:
    1. Ajaib Singh Bagri; The main conspirator of Air India bombing in 1985, worked as sawmill forklift driver at Kamloops and has openly called for murder of 50,000 hindus.
    2. Maher Arar; The mohammedan terrorist, he & his terrorism supporting wife were employed at Thomson Rivers University Kamloops, duped Canadian govt. into compensating him 12 million dollars by falsely claiming torture while in Syrian jail.
    No wonder pro-sharia, islam-appologist, bigots, racist & anti-western people like Bill Sandhu get elected to the parliament form this area.
