On October 17, 2019 I sent a media inquiry to the Walk-In Islamic InfoCenter in Toronto:
On October 14, 2019 Mr. Haashim Atangana Kamena, a Muslim street preacher, was recorded preaching on the corner of streets Yonge and Dundas in downtown Toronto holding a sign that reads: “Free Info on Islam.” An identical sign is regularly used by Muslim Dawah activists who operate the Islamic booth at Dundas Square. The Walk-In Islamic InfoCenter operates an Islamic Dawah booth at Dundas Square.
In his Dawah speech Mr. Haashim Atangana Kamena said among other things: “The Jews control the media” and “Islam is going to win.”

- Is Haashim Atangana Kamena a Dawah activist of the Walk-In Islamic InfoCenter?
- Did the Walk-In Islamic InfoCenter give permission to Haashim Atangana Kamena to use the sign “Free Info on Islam”?
- Do the statements by Haashim Atangana Kamena reflect in whole or in part the true teachings of Islam as being taught by your Dawah organization?
Mohammed Obaidullah, Volunteer President and Owais Rafi, Vice President of the Walk-In Islamic InfoCenter, responded:
We hope this email finds you in the best of health. Thank you for your inquiry. Following are the answers to your questions. Mr. Haashim is not a dawah activist of Walk-in islamic Info Center and we do not know him. The sign Free Info on Islam Mr Hashim is using is not our sign.
