Islamophobia motion will target moderate Muslims

In the wake of the tragic massacre at a Quebec City mosque that killed six Muslims, a motion will be debated in the Canadian Parliament Wednesday asking MPs to “condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination.”

Many in the mosque establishment and right-wing Islamic groups in Canada are celebrating this as a victory.

But Muslim critics of the so-called “Motion 103”, which mentions only Islamophobia by name and not any other form of religious persecution, are in disbelief that so few members of parliament have objected to this giant step backward and the watering down of our freedom of expression.
