THE CANADIAN HOUSE OF COMMONS HAS PASSED MOTION M103 WHICH SINGLES OUT THE CRITICISM OF ISLAM AS A FORM OF “ISLAMOPHOBIA”. CRITICS CONDEMN IT AS AN ATTACK ON FREE SPEECH.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Canada just made it a crime to say anything critical of Islam with the passage of Motion M103, effectively chipping away another huge chunk of what remains of free speech in that nation. Conservatives are rightly afraid that they may soon see the establishment of Sharia Courts in Canada.
Motion M103 was tabled by Iqra Khalid, a Muslim member of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party. It states the government must “condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination”, was taken to vote on Thursday evening where a total of 201 MPs voted for it and only 91 voted against, Canadian broadcaster Global News reports.
The text of the motion does not clarify what constitutes “Islamophobia” and has led many to speculate what that may mean in the future, with some critics fearing it could lead to Shariah law courts. This concern has led to the circulation of an anti-Shariah petition on the Parliament of Canada website, which has so far been signed by over 24,000 people.
