Canuckistan: Monitoring mosques is ‘racist’-continued
Nadeem Chaudhry, a member of the Pakistani Muslim Association of Cornwall, said he was “really upset to hear those comments” and is calling for Galganov to call off his candidacy.
Galganov essentially blamed the Islamic religion for the attacks on New York City and Washington, D. C. in 2001 by saying “9/11 (wasn’t) pulled off by a bunch of blue-eyed, blond-haired kids.”
* if Galganov said that it would indeed be a big mistake as it invokes race. Its the ideology that made them do it/ed
The comment was made in response to a question regarding why he was pushing for access to mosques such as Jami Masjid Zakaria in Cornwall and the Al- Rashid Institute in Glen Walter in his platform.
The other candidates called Galganov’s idea racist, offensive and disgraceful, to name a few. Members of the crowd were both shocked and appalled. But some supported his stance.
Chaudhry defended Galganov’s right to free speech, but couldn’t understand why he would blame Muslims for 9/11 “without any concrete reason.” (there are more than 3000 ‘concrete reasons’/ed)
“What he said gives out the wrong message,” Chaudhry said. “It starts hatred in people because it gives them the wrong impression of Islam.”
* can’t have that. The infidels must be kept unawares of what Islam has in store for them…
Muslims around the world suffered wrongly for the events of 9-11, according to Chaudhry, but he insists Islam is a very peaceful religion. (I would like to see some ‘concrete proof’ for that/ed)
He thinks Galganov’s answer could, legally speaking, be considered a human rights violation, slander or, at the very least, a form of religious hatred.
Chaudhry attends both the institute and the local mosque, which has been operating in the community for 20 years.
While Chaudhry recognizes there are extremist Muslims, he says all religions have worshippers who wrongly use violence in defense of their religion.
He said Nazi Party leader Adolf Hitler ordered the deaths of millions of people during the Second World War, but no one called him an “extremist Christian.” (the usual Muzz-bullshit. Hitler didn’t committ crimes in the name of Christianity/ed)
Chaudhry pointed out Galganov’s assertion blond, blue-eyed people did not perpetrate the terrorist attacks was kind of ironic because it mirrored Hitler’s description of the Aryan race, his idea of the perfect people.
Sayed Hafizi, a local business owner from Afghanistan, was at the debate and deeply offended.
“I didn’t feel good about what he was saying,” Hafizi said. “I wanted to stop him from talking because he was talking about my religion.”
“He was saying all Muslims are bad, but we are like any people. We have good and bad people. If I was a bad person, they would have asked me to leave Canada.”
Hafizi has been living in Canada for 20 years. Mazhar Alam, the imam at the Jami Masjid ZakariaÂ mosque, could not be reached for comment.
“The doors are open to everyone,” he said.
