Zunera Ishaq, the ICNA and a Listed Terrorist Entity: The Niqab Debate in Canada

Zunera Ishaq, the woman at the centre of the “niqab debate” in the Canadian election campaign, works for the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA). The ICNA has its annual conference in partnership with the Muslim American Society (MAS), an organization which has been listed as a terrorism entity. The MAS, along with Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) was listed by the United Arab Emirates as a North American based terrorism front/proxy group for the Muslim Brotherhood in late 2014.

    Voted wearing the traditional garb of my people. They didn’t even ask me to swear an oath, until I reminded them it was required by law. Also, two polling officers were wearing the official party colours of the NDP and Liberals, in violation of federal law.
