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.
