REPORT: Group Wants Trudeau To Declare January 29 “National Day Of Remembrance And Action On Islamophobia”

The request from the National Council of Canadian Muslims refers to the day of the shooting at a Quebec Mosque in 2017.

The National Council of Canadian Muslims is calling on Justin Trudeau to declare January 29 the “National Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia.”

As noted by the CP, “In a letter to the prime minister released today, executive director Ihsaan Gardee says such a designation would help enhance public education about hate, bigotry and Islamophobia. Last January, six Muslim men were shot and killed and 19 others were wounded in an attack on the mosque during prayers. Alexandre Bissonnette of Quebec City is to stand trial in March on six charges each of first-degree murder and attempted murder.”

Added Gardee, “We must not allow voices of hate, even ones that initially appear to be on the margins, to permeate our public discourse and damage our social fabric.”

A misguided approach

The Mosque shooting was a horrible crime. No Canadian citizen should ever be in fear when they are in a house of worship, and all acts of violence must be unequivocally condemned.

With that in mind, calling for a “National Day of Remembrance and Action against Islamophobia” is a misguided and concerning approach.

That’s because “Islamophobia” is being used by many far-left elitist politicians like Trudeau in order to silence any legitimate criticism of Islam.

After all, we live in what is supposed to be a free country, and because Islam is an idea, it must remain open to criticism – as other faiths are as well.

Additionally, the world – including Canada – faces a serious threat from radical Islamism.

There is no day of Remembrance and Action against radical Islamism, despite the fact that many Canadians have been killed and injured by adherents of that brutal ideology.

If Trudeau was to follow through on the request, other groups would understandably demand more official days of Remembrance for every crime that takes place in the country, which would take things way too far.

We also know that many politicians and groups would use such a day to slander any Canadian who criticized or questioned Islam as “Islamophobic,” and falsely equate them with the terrible act committed on January 29, 2017.

It would be used to erode our freedom of speech and expression, and would further enforce the rigid and stifling political correctness being imposed by the elites.

That’s why it’s an idea the government should not accept.

The NATIONAL COUNCIL of CANADIAN MUSLIMS (NCCM), (Formerly Known as CAIR-CAN) is a front for the TERRORIST Organization “The MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD”.

We also do NOT know the TRUTH in this attack. I strongly suspect there is an excellent possibility this was a Muslim on Muslim attack which is so often the case. The Muslim suspect was held behind bars for over 12 hours with the intent of going to Court later that day. PM Trudeau and the PMO get involved and suddenly the Muslim suspect becomes a witness under the Witness Protection Program. No explanation has ever been given to Canadians. Kate Purchase from the PMO gets involved in the communication aspect of a criminal investigation which is the job of… Read more »

The entire story stinks big time. Furthermore, the case with Bissonnette is not finalized. Police has been unable to provide proof of ballistics to the judge as late as November 2017. Furthermore and aside from all this, if we were asking for a national day for every terrorist attacks perpetrated against us christians, there would not be enough days in the year to cover them all. One event and they want a national day. That is a very insulting request to Canadians.

never believed it. None of it adds up, and it was easy to manipulate the public – we ourselves in Canada, our own ability to take part in this cause-and-effect agenda, that will be our undoing.

I’d support a holiday to remember the 24 Canadians who were killed in the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Centre.

Excellent comments above!
Continue to expose these groups as the Mainstream Media certainly won’t help to educate Canadians.

So many details about this attack are disturbing. Witnesses in the mosque stated there were two attackers with weapons, then all of a sudden there was only one. Did one suddenly become a rumor after Trudeau’s phone calls? Why did Trudeau and his officials interfere with the plice investigation? Should interference charges be laid against Trudeau and others in his office?

Trudeau should step aside until all this is cleared in the Courts. That will never happen as Trudeau controls the Courts and Judges.

When is the anti-Semitic day of remembrance? Since they experience a rate of hate crimes 20 times more than Muslims, shouldn’t they get a day also? When are people going to realize that there is a well organized agenda being pushed, that is supported by the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, and other organized Muslim groups to input and change the laws in western nations to inch towards Sharia law. Muslims are only 3% of the Canadian population, yet politically get attention as if they were closer to 50% of the population. Other larger groups do not have the political power they… Read more »

The Trudeau Liberals display support for Islam. Our government is infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood. They are quietly taking over Canada.

Often the term Radical Islam is bandied about. Sorry friends, there is no such distinction. All of Islam is radical, its so called holy book the Quran is comparable to Satans Bible and Hitlers Mein Kamph (My Struggle).
Islam is an extremely violent and all life encompassing ideology, and completely incompatible with Christianity. To except Islam and Sharia Law, would be the equivalent of taking a poisonous snake in ones bosom and expect not to get bitten.

Years of large – scale immigration to Canada has brought significant ethnic , racial and religious diversity to Canada , but has also prompted hostile back lasses with regard to fear , anxiety and national unity , Muslim immigrants and their off spring must examine whether and how they want to be included in the prevailing ” NATIONAL IDENTITY ” in the societies where they choose to live and to what extent they remain perpetual foreigners in the ” LONG – ESTABLISHED NATIVE – BORN ” , immigrants to Canada fail to understand specific social forces in Canada which account… Read more »
