The Islamic Party of Ontario fails to complete registration process

The Islamic Party of Ontario fails to complete registration process

Elections Ontario has updated the status of the Islamic Party of Ontario as “expired” and removed it from the list of reserved political party names.

Founded by the journalist and publisher Jawed Anwar from Thorncliffe Park in Toronto, the Islamic Party of Ontario started the registration process on August 28, 2018, but failed to meet the legal requirements during a year since preserving the name of the party.

On December 8, 2018 Jawed Anwar published the political platform of the Islamic Party of Ontario.

Islamic Party of Ontario: Principles and Policy

Principles & Policies

Islamic Party of Ontario is founded on and will be guided in its policy formation by the following principles:

-Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms starts with, “Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law.” The Islamic Party of Ontario believes in “Supremacy of God” and understands that it is our constitutional requirement to make all the rule of laws of Provinces and Federal in obedience and according to the will of God.

– Believing in God’s Supremacy means believing in His Oneness, His Authority, and His Obedience in all spheres of life.

-God is Himself the GUIDE to set fundamental principles of the outlook of life and practices in private to public life –political, social, education, economy, health, environment, and the justice system. In Quranic term, it is known as DEEN.

-God sent Adam to Muhammad (peace be upon all of them), 124,000 messengers and prophets in different eras, nations, and tribes with one DEEN (system of life); that is “Islam”.

-The word Islam means “surrender” and “peace”. That means Islam requires surrender to God to attain peace. This is the DEEN taught by all the messengers and prophets from God and to all the nations.

-The DEEN of Noah (Nooh), Abraham (Ibrahim), Isaak (Ishaq), Ishmael (Ismail), Jacob (Yaqub), Jonah (Yunus), Moses (Musa), Jesus (Eisa), and Muhammad (p.b.u.h.) are the same, and that is Islam. These messengers are all brothers and sent from the same God.

-Islam is the only and oldest DEEN of GOD brought and started by Adam (p.b.u.h.), the first man and the first messenger of God, created by God without mother and father. It is the same DEEN brought by Jesus (p.b.u.h.) before Muhammadﷺ who born without father. It is a misconception that Islam is a “religion” created by Muhammad ﷺ. Islam is the only way to attain peace and justice and provides laws without any prejudice.

–We understand and believe that Islam is the native DEEN of Ontario and Canada.

-All the books were revealed: Vedas (oldest scripture after the flood that destroyed whole world except Noah and his followers) probably revealed to Noah, Tawrāt (or Torah) revealed to Moses, Zabūr (or Book of Psalms) revealed to Daud, Injil (or Gospel), revealed to Jesus, and finally Qur’an, revealed to Muhammad (peace be upon all of them) are from the same source, Allah (God).

-Qur’an is the latest and final edition of divine books that provides complete guidance to all mankind in all walks of life that include politics and governance under the belief of Supremacy of God. This is the only book of God now that is available in original and complete form without mixing of any human words and errors. All other books are either changed, distorted, and available in different versions and not available in its original form, text, and language. Qur’an is in 100% original and pure form. The language in which it revealed is alive, and hundreds of thousands of people from the very beginning memorized full Qur’an, and that memorization continues. In Ontario alone, you can find several hundred or maybe above a thousand who have memorized the full Qur’an in Arabic as it was revealed.

The latest, revised, and final edition of the divine book (Qur’an) confirms the previous teachings of the Books. All other Books of God are now obsolete after the final revelation of God, the Quran.

-There is no Messenger or Prophet of God after Muhammad (peace be upon him). He is the final Messenger of God for all human beings and all the nations till Qiyamah (doomsday). Allah and His Messenger ﷺ completed and perfected the DEEN (Islam) and made it easy to practice for all.

“This day I have perfected for you your DEEN (a way of life), and have bestowed upon you My bounty in full measure, and have been pleased to assign for you Islam as your DEEN.” (Al-Qur’an 5:3)

-The practices of Messenger of Allah, Muhammad ﷺ; his deeds, words, actions in private and public life were all directly guided from Allah. In Quranic terminology, it is called “Sunnah”.

-Qur’an and Sunnah are the two sources of guidance given by God, the Creator of human beings and the whole universe, to shape our private and public life both.

-Islamic Party of Ontario sets its policy of governance, economy, social justice, human dignity, healthcare, family life, environment, and justice, etc. according to the Qur’an and Sunnah.

-Islamic Party of Ontario believes in the rights and freedoms of all faith and religious beliefs to practice their faith in their private lives, and the establishment of places of worship with full protection of life, wealth, and dignity.

– To achieve the objective, Islamic Party of Ontario will follow the peaceful and democratic means provided by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedom.

-All human beings are equal and sons and daughters of same father and mother, Adam and Eve. The better among us are those who have more fear of Allah (loves God and fully obey Him); a person of character.

– The relationship established under a marriage contract is a sacred union between a man and a woman. God made Adam and Eve –not Adam and Steve.

– All the people of Ontario and Canada, aboriginal, native or immigrants (old and new immigrants) have the same rights, responsibilities, and opportunities.

-The right of all to have food, clothing, and shelter with dignity to all.

-Interest-free capital and worker partnership economy; neither capitalism nor communism.

– Freedom of the individual, including freedom of speech, religious practices, worship, and assembly.

–Neither right nor left, Islam is the straight path. It balances human life.

-Upliftment of the deprived and weak communities.

POLICIES:

Social:

Family System has to be restored to protect the generations to sustain human beings on earth until its natural ends.

Marriage is a sacred union between a man and woman. The birth of babies of next generation and survival of human species depends on this institution. Majority of Ontarians and Canadians living as single moms and dads are affecting the sound healthy growth of children. If the situation continues, this society will rely hundred percent on immigrants and from the nations where the traditional family system is protected. The Canadian family system and marriage institution must be restored for the survival of coming generations.

The sexual relationship is only between men and women. This relationship should be protected with a marriage contract by clearly defining rights and responsibilities of both man and woman. They must have to take responsibility for family care and children nourishment. The government should be supportive of this responsible family. They should be given privilege and affordable housing for healthy living and nourishment.

Allah has created two genders: men and women. Any physical defect in any organ of a person doesn’t change one’s gender identification and sexual orientation. All the communities of all the faiths believe in it; modern science proves it. The concept of “gender identity” or “seven-colour gender” is a false concept.

The relationship established under a marriage contract is a sacred union between a man and a woman. God made Adam and Eve –not Adam and Steve.

No artificial and irresponsible approach to stop the birth of children at any stage should be allowed. We believe in a complete ban on abortion except in a situation when a mother’s life is in danger.

Measures should be taken to stop suicide, including doctor-assisted suicide of patients. All life is precious and trust of God. No one has the right to take his own or another’s life due to depression or disease. It is only God who gives life and can take back the life whenever He wants.

Obscenity, vulgarity, nudity, and perversion must be checked.

Liquor, drugs, adultery, gambling, etc. should be banned in society.

Promoting a generous, loving and caring society, we will build a respectful society for parents, elders, children, youth, men, and women.

Education

Bring an education system that is best for this world and hereafter.

Schools should be teaching the attributes of the utmost best character. The education system should be a character building system and a process to produce the “person of character”.

The purpose of education should no more be just for a professional or material gain; it should also be a moral and spiritual upliftment. This concept will change the environment of the school and the classrooms and also the characters of students, teachers, and all the people that are involved in this system. Our education system should provide an environment of peace, love, respect, brotherhood, sisterhood, amity, harmony, kindness, helping and complementing each other, generous, self-control, open-mindedness, and easy acceptance of truth.

An education system that develops creativity, leadership, and responsible and loving, caring, and family-oriented persons. They should be fruitful for the society and give back something to this world and coming generations.

The experience and surveys show that “boy only” and “girl only” schools produce much better results. We will support a gradual transition from co-education to gender-specific schools.

Government funding to all faith-based schools with the freedom of conscience and religion (guaranteed by Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedom) must be granted.

Economy

A just economic system; neither capitalism nor communism.

In a just society, it is not possible that one section of the society is super rich and other section of the society is super poor. Please check Qur’anic principles of spending: sadqah (charity), and interest-free economy.

Interest-free economy: Interest is the main source of exploitation. It sucks the blood of the poor (labor, worker) to establish a class of super-rich. Islamic economy facilitates to balance it and provides a culture of charity and human brotherhood and sisterhood. A person who has more than his/her needs will be encouraged to give to others to develop private businesses. If a person is not ready to give, then he or she should share (justifiable) in profit and loss but should never lend money on interest.

Recession and slowing in the economy will only be avoided in an interest-free economy and capital-worker partnership finances, where circulation of money will never be stopped.

The finances of businesses and banks will be managed with labour-capitol partnership and share in profit.

Ontario is the second largest province in area in Canada, and Canada is the second largest country in area in the world. It has vast unused land. Despite this fact, the majority of people don’t have their own homes. Laws should be made to break the chain of controls that maximize the price of the home.

Less tax, small but efficient government.

Food, clothing, shelter, and dignity for all.

International new markets should be founded and developed for Ontario and Canada and pursue gradual freedom from the total dependency on the US economy.

Measures to reach and partner with third-world countries market having several billion populations.

Ontario should be the best place for both business and agriculture.

Health:

We believe prevention is better than cure. Preventing disease and controlling the cause of disease should be our priority.

Public education through schools and media for a healthy living.

Reduce pollution.

Provide clean water, air, and food.

Discourage smoking.

Gradual removing of all agricultural products other than organic.

Ban health hazardous chemicals used in agricultural products and in canned food and bottled drinks.

Eat quality food.

Our health system and government policy are more towards pro-pharmaceutical and chemical industries (capitalistic and helping big profiteers). It should be changed to pro-health and pro-people.

The super profiteers’ medicine manufacturing companies are making sure that they would produce medicine to “manage” the disease and not for the “cure” of the disease. A patient has to use the medicine throughout his/her life and increase the dosage over the period of time to “help” the capitalists and capitalism. There is no “cure” of any disease in the so-called modern medicine. This situation must change.

We support investment in research and development for alternative medicines that may be more effective and less expensive; eg, naturopathy, herbal, homeopathy, and others. Give at least same chance to other ways of treatments to prove beneficence.

Justice & Rights

Goal: A crime-free and peaceful Ontario.

Justice is not just crime and punishment. It includes the protection of life, property, dignity, and places of worship of all religious faiths and non-faith.

Rights come with responsibility and protection and wellbeing of all human beings.

Democratic and human rights of a person in his individual life will be protected unless it transgresses the rights of life, property, and dignity of others.

A strict law will be suggested to ban blasphemy of any religious (all) symbols and personalities.

Environment:

God has created the universe and all the objects in it to serve human beings, and human beings are created to serve (obey) God.

Protect air, water, and farmland so that they can serve human beings better.

Don’t waste, don’t pollute the environment. Wasting a few drops of water even if you are sitting at the brink of a river, or plucking a small leaf from a tree without reason is not allowed in the Islamic way of life.

The rights of animals are to be maintained. These include the right for wildlife to live in a natural, unpolluted environment, and the right to be free from trophy hunting and other “sports” hunting that exploit the animals for vain reasons. Food animals have the right to be maintained in natural, humane, and ethical conditions (Arabic tayyib) instead of cruel factory farms. They have the right to be slaughtered in the halal fashion, which causes less trauma to an animal than the massive horror of cruel mass-slaughtering houses, and which causes an animal to faint and then bleed out in a matter of seconds. All animals –whether pets, wildlife, or food animals— have the right to live without abuse and exploitation.

Energy:

Choose a path to achieve 100% renewable energy in Ontario.

Why do Toronto Police tolerate disturbance by participants in unlawful assemblies?

Why do Toronto Police tolerate disturbance by participants in unlawful assemblies?

On Monday morning, October 7, 2019 the Prince Edward Viaduct in Toronto, a major traffic artery, was blocked for several hours by protesters affiliated with Extinction Rebellion Toronto advocating a “Global Rebellion” to save the planet.

Extinction Rebellion Toronto states it is the “Toronto chapter of Extinction Rebellion which is focused on non-violent direct action and civil disobedience for action on the climate crisis and biodiversity loss.”

Extinction Rebellion Toronto presents its demands from the Canadian government: “Tell the Truth about our climate crisis; Make plans to bring us to net-zero CO2 emissions by 2025; Create an equitable People’s Assembly to oversee the transition to a low-emissions world.”

Extinction Rebellion Toronto has also political and social long-term goals “to spark and sustain a spirit of creative rebellion, which will enable much needed changes in our political, economic and social landscape.”

According to Extinction Rebellion Toronto, “We endeavour to mobilize and train organisers to skillfully open up space, so that communities can develop the tools they need to address our deeply rooted problems. We work to transform our society into one that is compassionate, inclusive, sustainable, equitable and connected.”

The official website reported about the activities during the protest and explained the goals of blocking the bridge for traffic and the immediate demands of the protesters:

  • Protesters: Toronto members of Extinction Rebellion, Animal Rebellion Turtle Island, unidentified solidarity groups
  • Nature of the protest: Global Rebellion—a two-week campaign of nonviolent civil disobedience
  • Immediate demand: Action on the climate crisis
  • Protesters’ activities: Occupied the Prince Edward Viaduct at 8:05am. Rebels held the bridge for close to five hours.
  • Police response: The police attempted to clear the bridge at 11:45pm and ordered everyone to vacate the area. 18 members of Extinction Rebellion Toronto and Animal Rebellion Turtle Island refused to leave the bridge and were arrested and charged with Mischief/obstruct use of property not to exceed $5000. They were all released within 24 hours and are now safe at home.

Toronto Police officer told me at the scene: “It is a permitted protest with the City [of Toronto]… I have been told, what I understand is that they have called ahead and they have initiated a protest.”

Responding to my media inquiry on October 7, 2019, Hakeem Muhammad, a Senior Communications Coordinator for the City of Toronto wrote: “Thanks for reaching out. The City of Toronto did not issue a road closure permit for this protest. I would suggest you follow-up directly with the Toronto Police Service for further questions. Thank you, and let me know if you need anything else.”

Mubin Shaikh says Muslim leaders don’t believe “in bringing Shariah Law in Canada”

Mubin Shaikh says Muslim leaders don’t believe “in bringing Shariah Law in Canada”

Born and raised in Canada, Mubin Shaikh is a former security intelligence and counter terrorism operative. At the age of 19, he went to India and Pakistan where he had a chance encounter with the Taliban prior to their takeover of Afghanistan in 1995. Mubin became fully radicalized as a supporter of the global Jihadist culture, recruiting others and establishing his network in the extremist milieu.

The 9/11 attacks forced to him reconsider his views. Returning to Canada in 2004, he became a undercover operator with the Canadian Security Intelligence Service and worked several CLASSIFIED investigations. In late 2005, one of those files moved to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Integrated National Security Enforcement Team (INSET) and Mubin traversed to what came to be known as the “Toronto 18” terrorism case resulting in the conviction of 11 aspiring violent extremists.

He has since obtained a Master of Policing, Intelligence and Counter Terrorism (MPICT), is now a PhD candidate in Psychological Sciences studying radicalization, deradicalization and violent extremism at the University of Liverpool, Tactical Decision Making Research Group.

On October 8, 2019 I sent Mubin Shaikh a media inquiry:

Background information

Your tweet (October 6, 2019):

“I don’t know what self-respecting Muslim would ever vote CPC. They absolutely HATE us. Most of these conspiracies about ShariahLaw, M103 etc., come from them (& their media arm REBEL TV), the other being the PPC of course.”

Reference: https://twitter.com/MrMubinShaikh/status/1180943759816773634

The Islamic organization Hezb ut-Tahrir Canada, senior Canadian Muslim scholars and Imams (Abu Ameena Bilal Philips, Taha Ghayyur, Kathreen Bullok, Abdul Hakim Quick, Ahmed Shehab to name a few) and Islamic literature available at Islamic centres (modern commentary of the Gardens of the Righteous by A-Nawawi) in Canada support the gradual implementation of the Sharia Law.

Questions

Based on your tweet do you suggest that the aforementioned organizations, Islamic centres, scholars and Imams also promote “conspiracies about Shariah Law”?

In your opinion do the aforementioned organizations, Islamic centres, scholars and Imams represent the true Islam?

I’ll appreciate a response by 4pm October 9, 2019. If you require more time please let me know.

Sincerely,

Eric Stanley Brazau

Investigative journalist

On the same day Mubin Shaikh responded;

1. I know who you are and I don’t like you one bit.

2. None of those people you mentioned, believes in bringing Shariah Law in Canada. The 5th columnist HizbutTahreer group however, have this laughable dream that the world should come under ShariahLaw and those people can go f*ck themselves.

Cheers,

MS

Statements by Canadian scholars and Imams on Shariah Islamic Law

Is Prayer to Allah “destroy accursed Jews” reflecting Islamic values?

Is Prayer to Allah “destroy accursed Jews” reflecting Islamic values?

In two Friday sermons delivered at the Al-Andalous Islamic Center in Montreal, Canada, in August 2014, Sheikh Sayyed Al-Ghitawi prayed to Allah to “destroy the accursed Jews” and to “kill them one by one.”

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) translated Sheikh Sayyed Al-Ghitawi’s prayers:

[Posted on August 16, 2014]

You are aware of what is going on in Palestine – the massacres and the forbidden violations. The [Palestinians] are our brothers, our kin. We are followers of the same prophet, the Prophet Muhammad. On Judgment Day, Allah will ask us what we have done for them. We have done nothing for them except to extend our prayers to them.

[…]

Boycotting the Israeli products that are imported here is beneficial in many ways. Any of us who buys one of these products should know that he is buying a bullet that will hit the Muslims. If you boycott these products, you will have an argument to present to Allah on Judgment Day. When the Lord asks you: “What have you done for them?” you will say: “Lord, at the very least, I refrained from buying their products.” It’s not that there are no alternatives. There are many alternatives. Ever since the non-Muslims – they were non-Muslims, I’m sad to say – began to boycott those products, the [Israelis] have lost a lot of money. It is, first and foremost, our duty to boycott these products. Educate yourself about all these products and boycott them. Whether or not violations are perpetrated against the Muslims in Palestine, boycott them, so that we will have an argument to present to Allah when we meet Him.

[…]

Oh Allah, support our brothers who wage Jihad for Your sake everywhere. Oh Allah, support our brothers the mujahideen in Palestine. Oh Allah, give them patience. Oh Allah, help them gain a foothold. Oh Allah, help them gain a foothold. Oh Allah, give them victory over their enemy. Oh Allah, destroy the accursed Jews. Oh Allah, show us the black day You inflict upon them. Oh Allah, show us the wonders of Your might and ability inflicted upon them.

[…]

Oh Allah, turn their children into orphans and their women into widows, and make them suffer adversities, oh Lord of the Worlds.

[…]

[Posted on August 3, 2014]

Oh Allah, grant victory to our brothers who wage Jihad in Palestine, oh Lord. Oh Allah, help them gain a foothold. Oh Allah, unite their ranks. Oh Allah, heal the sick among them. Oh Allah, satiate their hunger, clothe them, and quench their thirst. Oh Allah, have mercy upon their martyrs, oh Lord of the Worlds. Oh Allah, destroy the accursed Jews. Oh Allah, show us the black day You inflict upon them. Oh Allah, show us the wonders of Your might and ability inflicted upon them, and make the land quake under their feet. Oh Allah, kill them one by one. Do not leave a single one of them. Oh Allah, turn their children into orphans and their women into widows. Oh Allah, make them suffer adversities.

On February 20, 2017 Al-Andalous Islamic Center administration issued a press release regarding these prayers:

Al-Andalous Islamic Center administration reiterates its strong condemnation of any hate speech regardless of the target community, and regardless of the speaker. This condemnation includes any speech targeting the Jewish community, including the clumsy and unacceptable phrasing used in the videos of a sermon held in 2014 at the Center by a substitute imam.

We noticed, at that time back in August 2014, that the substitute imam’s intention was not to call for the destruction of Jewish individuals or the elimination of this community. His wording was, however, tainted by an abusive generalization, and we consider that a serious mistake.

We met with the substitute imam immediately after he gave these sermons to request that he clarify his speech and correct his mistakes. Nothing in the Muslim religion allows for incitement of destruction of a community or individuals; nothing permits or allows attacks on the sacredness of human life. The substitute imam, as a religious cleric, knew this rightly and immediately recognized both his error and the dangerous phrasing that could be misinterpreted by anyone listening to his speech.

As indicated in our previous press release, the videos that contain this controversial speech were hosted and shared on a YouTube channel that the Al-Andalous Islamic Center administration does not control. The person who filmed and shared these videos on his YouTube platform was granted permission to film as he does in other Centers. The administration was not involved in managing this YouTube channel or in the processing of the videos. This explains our error of not having thought to ask the withdrawal of the videos.

Finally, we reaffirm that Al-Andalous Islamic Center administration strongly condemns all forms of anti-Semitism and hate speech, and we would like to offer our sincere apologies to anyone who legitimately felt offended by the supplications made in these videos.

Trudeau’s apology for racist mockery accepted by NCCM

Trudeau’s apology for racist mockery accepted by NCCM

Canada’s prime minister Justin Trudeau has been in hot water after photos came to light featuring him in blackface and brownface makeup in 2001 when Trudeau worked as a teacher in a private school in British Columbia. In another short video clip Trudeau is seen in blackface makeup mocking black people by facial gestures and stuffing his pants to portray a stereotypical cliche about black men’s genitalia.

Following widespread criticism Trudeau apologized for his racist behaviour and committed to unwavering fight for inclusion and diversity.

The National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM), the leading advocacy group for Muslims in Canada, issued two statements on the same day regarding Trudeau’s blackface/brownface scandal.

In the first statement NCCM denounced Trudeau’s behaviour and urged him to apologize and in the second statement NCCM accepted Trudeau’s apology.

NCCM’s first statement (September 18, 2019):

The National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) is calling on the Prime Minister to apologize for wearing “brownface”/”blackface” at an Arabian Nights Party in 2001. “Seeing the Prime Minister in brownface/blackface is deeply saddening,” said NCCM’s Executive Director Mustafa Farooq, “The wearing of blackface/brownface is reprehensible, and hearkens back to a history of racism and an Orientalist mythology which is unacceptable. While we recognize that people can change and evolve over two decades, it is critical that the Prime Minister immediately and unequivocally apologizes for his wearing of brownface/blackface.

NCCM’s second statement (September 18, 2019):

We thank the Prime Minister for his apology. Prime Minister Trudeau’s apology came less than an hour after NCCM called on him to apologize for wearing blackface/brownface.
