Canadian PM: Sharia law is compatible with democracy

Justin Trudeau insists Islamic law isn’t incompatible with democracy. The American Center for Democracy disagrees. Who’s right?

Canada continues to support and implement Sharia Law.

The American Center for Democracy (ACD) quotes Imam Aasim Rashid of Vancouver, British Columbia, who spoke in October 2017 at Thompson Rivers University, explaining why the Canadian government wants to implement Sharia Law.

“I’ll tell you who wants to bring Sharia Law,” Thompson said then. “The Canadian government wants to bring Sharia Law and this is not a joke. Why? Because Sharia Law is simply the way Muslims are doing things.”

“The Canadian government wanted the Muslims to be able to regulate their own issues….to solve their problems amongst themselves [according] to Sharia Law, so it is not a burden on the court system which is already so bogged down.

“The government told us – we would like you to have this system, and we would like to work on these initiatives with you.”

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told CBC in January 2016 that “Islam is not incompatible with Western secular democracy.”
