Here’s the real war within Islam

“There is a war going on and the war is within Islam.”

In one short sentence, 29-year-old Karim Jivraj, the Conservative candidate in the federal riding of Rosedale-University in downtown Toronto, summed up the crisis that dominates political discourse today, including in Canada and the U.S.

Jivraj was speaking Sunday at an all-party debate hosted by the Canadian Council of Muslim Women (CCMW).
