FATAH: Bare-chested religious self-flagellation has no place on our streets

For many years now, a medieval ritual is being enacted by Muslims on the streets of Canada to mourn the murder 1,400 years ago of Prophet Muhammad’s grandson Hussain Ibn Ali in the Iraqi city of Karbala. This is when his fellow Muslims loyal to the ruler of the Islamic Caliphate of the time slaughtered Prophet Muhammad’s entire progeny, save a few women and an infant.

To put this in perspective, the tragedy observed as ‘Ashura’ unfolded way back on Oct. 10, 680 AD.

This lunacy has been going on for some time in TO.
