Ontario: DawaNet forum in Mississauga to tackle Islamophobia

MISSISSAUGA – DawaNet, a Mississauga-based Canadian Muslim community empowerment, engagement and education organization, is hosting an event to help push back the growing level of Islamophobia nationwide.

Titled I’m Muslim – what is it to you?, the event will held from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 6, at the Noel Ryan Auditorium of Central Library in Mississauga.

The forum will focus on the growing Islamophobia within the community that has been affecting young Muslims particularly in a post 9/11 world. It will also discuss issues such as racism and women’s choice of wearing niqab and hijab as well as faith-based choices of everyday lifestyle.

The event’s primary goal is to push back the growing level of Islamophobia by highlighting how well Muslims have integrated into Canada. It will also talk about the political narrative that is driving the racism…

    “I’m Muslim – what is it to you?”

    They are here in the West — that’s the problem. A billion Muzholians practicing mutual beheading, child marriage and polygamy in Islamistan is perfectly acceptable.

      They act as if their presence has no effect on anyone else.

        Cause it’s in the koran…..

    If they have integrated well into Canada, they wouldn’t need the forum in the first place.

      If the were deported it would be even better

  • dukestreet

    If they didn’t spend their time using up welfare money, refusing to integrate while demanding everyone else make special exceptions for them, threatening every one who thinks differently than them, threatening to kill Jews and claiming that we all have a non-existent phobia. They would fit in like everyone one else but, they don’t.

    If you were ever looking for a definition of churzpah, this is it in spades. And that’s chutzpah with the throat-clearing sound that you make when you’re about to spit up the phlegm that’s sticking in your craw — think of the Scottish word “loch” and you’ll be pronouncing it correctly.

  • The mirror campaign in Syria: “I’m a Christian. I Was Here Before You Were. What Is My Religion to You? Oh, I See You’ve Killed My Mother. I’ll Be Leaving Now.”

    These “Islamophobia” campaigns are a joke.

    “The forum will focus on the growing NAZIphobia within the community that has been affecting young NAZIs particularly in a post Blitzkrieg world. ”

    Those wacky muslims. You know, they’re just like us.
    I don’t know why anyone would think otherwise.

    Can woman recite the Qur’an when she in her time of periods?

    Praise be to Allah.

    A woman is allowed to read the Quran from her memory while in her monthly period. She is also allowed to listen to recitations. As for reading the Qur’an from a Mushaf (actual book), the majority of scholars do not consider it as permissible.

    The PeelDSB just another one taxpayer funded organizations where your money goes to fund an offshoot called PeelEquity. It has a program to promote ‘racialized’ teachers for vice-principal positions. And I guess you can’t guess what color skin is unacceptable to them.

    Wow, so 19 muslims terrorists murdered 24 Canadian on 9/11/01 as a favour to Allah as they followed the commands set out by muhamed in the qruan, but now they call US islamophobes because we question their claims that it’s a religion of Peace.

    How many non -muslims have to be slaughtered by their islamist brothers before they grant us the right to doubt their claims of peace….50,000, 150,000, 50,000 .

    its not a phobia when you are talking about the disgusting evil called Islam
