Is CBC Suppressing Muslim Voices Concerning Taliban’s Rise to Power?

Is CBC Suppressing Muslim Voices Concerning Taliban’s Rise to Power? In August of 2021, the Americans withdrew from Afghanistan, which permitted the Taliban to regain control. The CBC reported extensively on this from many angles: human rights, women’s rights, education, interpreters, airport explosion, etc.

One angle that seems to be missing from the extensive coverage of the rise of the Taliban in Afghanistan is the voice of Canadian Muslim leaders. As of September 8, 2021, a search on CBC web site revealed nothing that referred to Canadian Imam Younus Kathrada’s statements about the Taliban.

Imam Younus Katrada

Imam Younus Kathrada is a senior l leader in Canada, who has clearly spoken about the Taliban’s rise to power in Afghanistan.

Below is a transcript of a clip that Canadian Imam Younus Kathrada had up loaded on his YouTube channel on August 20, 2021, View Clip

I incite you to show support for your brothers in Afghanistan who wants to establish the Shari’a in their land. We see that the West wants to talk about the rights of women. Oh yes, the rights of women, her right to be a prostitute, her right to sleep around with whomever she wishes. I want you to understand what those rights are, oh, by the way, her right to be abused, her right to show her body off to men who gets off on watching her in porn. Allah Grant victory to the mujahideen for your sake everywhere. Allah grant success to our brothers in Afghanistan. So that they establish your Sharia on this land.

Further support was added by Senior Colorado Imam Karim AbuZaid, who often speaks in Canadian mosques.

Below is a partial transcript;

Now the laws of Taliban – the laws of the Sharia – of Islam, that’s what they want to implement in their country. So what is wrong with that? Why don’t you place this on the same level, equal to Macron forcing women not to wear their hijab under the notion of keeping the custom and the principles of the Republic?

Listen – the hijab is an element of Islam. Muslims, you should love for the Sharia of Allah to be established through…Taliban happened to be the ruling authority in Afghanistan. Don’t they have the right to at least show their women the Islamic dress code? View Clip

ISIS Cites Quran & Scholars to Justify their Position

CBC Muslim voices that are not amplified.

On September 8, 2021 at 10am I sent a media inquiry the CBC

Why has the CBC given no coverage to Canadian Imam Younus Kathrada’s statements on the rise to power of the Taliban in Afghanistan when said statement was covered by independent media?

Why has the CBC given no coverage to Canadian Imam Younus Kathrada’s statements on Palestine and al-Aqsa Mosque made over the last several years? These statements were made public by independent media. Why did the CBC see fit to ignore them?

I will be publishing at 5 pm. If you need more time, please let me know.

Image of white supremacy in London Family Act Report

Canada London Family Act will usher in the systemic dismantling of the Western Christian ethos. It will be replaced with a ethos that is biased for everything that is not European, Western or Christian. Ex: The Crusades will be taught from the Islamic perspective. This subject has no middle ground. According to Muslim scholars it was the Muslims who were the aggressors. Acknowledging this fact will make Muslim students uncomfortable? London Family Act seems to state that soothing the sensibilities of Muslims is a primary objective of the Ontario government and Canadian society.

How to Use Media to Normalize View of Hijab & Islam as Champion of Human Rights

Ontario Lawyer Barbara Legate Organized Hijab Rally to support Muslim Community

Ontario Lawyer Barbara Legate Organized Hijab Rally to support Muslim Community

Hijabs for Harmony, rally was organized by local London Ontario lawyer Barbara Legate 

Women sporting the traditional headscarves were part of a crowd of about 500 people who gathered in London, Ontario, Friday evening June 19, 2021, in front of the bandshell in Victoria Park.

Also on hand was London North Centre NDP MPP Terence Kernaghan.

Kernaghan said he attended the rally to support a future where women can wear hijabs without fear

To further the development of Bridge building interfaith dialogue Let‘s us all learn the deeper spiritual meaning and significance of the Hijab. First we learn from Vancouver BC

Muftie Aasim Rashid

When she comes out she should conceal herself entirely; her whole body except for her hands and face must be covered. The face is not something that must be covered.   

I now read an excerpt from the Book Islam Balancing Life that is Distributed at Dundas SQ.  AIQ

Hijab frees woman being perceived as sexual objects. Whereas when a woman chooses to show her body in one form or another, the message is; she wants attention and possibly much more.

We now learn from Shabbir Ally, Toronto Imam & president of the International Dawah association

Tell the believing women to draw a part of their outer garments around themselves or close to themselves so that they will be recognized and not molestedScholars have said the woman must cover her face when she goes out of her house

We learn more about the spiritual significance from Sheikh Ahmed Kutty a senior Imam at the Islamic institute of Toronto, whose son Faizal Kutty was a consultant for the CBC production of little mosque on the Prairie.   

Modest attire for women that covers the whole body excluding the face and the hands is ordained by Allah in the Quran. No Muslim or Muslima can reject it on the grounds that,’ I am an adult and I can decide for myself

We continue along the bridge to interfaith with Imam Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips

Hijab it’s quite simple. Hijab is an obligation on Muslim women. And of course it doesn’t mean that if a Muslim woman doesn’t wear hijab she’s no longer a Muslim. But she is in sin if she doesn’t wear  the hijab. Hijab meaning that she covers her body, all of her body, in loose garment from head to toe. Nothing can be seen of her except for her face and hands.

In 2007, the Parliament of Canada proclaimed October Canadian Islamic History Month in recognition of the significant contributions the Muslim community has made to Canadian society.

Toronto district school board issued a resource guidebook for educators that is approved of by senior Muslim scholars. The section on Hijab

The hijab is a head scarf worn by some Muslim women who have reached adulthood as defined by the onset of puberty. Hijab is a piece of cloth that covers the hair, ears and neck, exposing only the face. all Muslim females wear the hijab. Female Muslim students may or may not wear the hijab based on individual choice.

In Conclusion we learn that women that wear the Hijab & are identified as Muslim women will not be molested/raped. We also learn that there is diversity of ruling as to weather a woman can exit the house with her face uncovered/exposed.

Thanks for watching IMFC…

Mohammed Hashim reinvents Islam by accepting multiple gender identities

Mohammed Hashim reinvents Islam by accepting multiple gender identities

Mohammed Hashim is “a labour and human rights advocate working as the Senior Organizer for the Toronto and York Region Labour Council” and “a Founding Advisor of Progress Toronto.” According to his bio on Mohammed Hashim “advocates on issues related to workers’ rights at the municipal level and is a leader on the promotion of equity issues and tackling Islamophobia.”

On January 2nd, 2019 Mohammed Hashim publicly criticized the Islamic Party of Ontario led by Jawed Anwar and specifically its goal to implement the sharia Islamic law and his “homophobic” platform. Hashim wrote (Facebook):

“Equally nutters is this Javed Anwer [sic] guy creating an Islamic Party of Ontario. He’s a Doug Ford [Ontario Premier] supporter! and to call someone an ‘enemy of Islam’?? Who made you God? But beyond that, I don’t know where he gets this idea that implementing sharia law on everyone is a good idea. It’s a mostly secular democratic system buddy,that strives for universal human rights. His platform is homophobic, misogynistic and surely does not represent my Islam.”

The Islamic Party of Ontario’s platform on LGBTQ issues reads:

“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” is a false concept.”

Based only on Canadian authentic sources I’ve learned that the Islamic Party of Ontario’s position on LGBTQ reflects the true teaching of Islam. Allah said in the holy Koran (Surah Al-Hujjurat 49:13) “O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another.” There is a consensus among the senior Canadian Muslim scholars that liberal concept of gender identity is foreign to Islam. My thorough search failed to find any respected Canadian scholars who support you position on LGBTQ.

Media Inquiry

Can you please provide the Islamic sources that led you to unequivocally reject the aforementioned Islamic Party of Ontario’s platform on LGBTQ while stating “[it] surely does not represent my Islam”?

Does your reformed version of Islam recognize liberal concept of gender identity and the existence of multiple genders in contradiction to Allah’s holy Koran, Prophet Mohammad’s (pbuh), the sahaba and the teachings of the great scholars of Islam?

What are your qualifications in Islamic studies? Are they sufficient to challenge the great scholars of Islam and the consensus among the senior Muslim scholars in Canada?

An article on this issue will be published by the end of the week. A response by 11am Wednesday will be much appreciated.

Note: On March 25, 2020 I sent a reminder to Mohammed Hashim that reads “I will postpone publishing till Thursday 26 March 11am. Your response, should you make one, will be included.”

As of March 27, 2020 Mohammed Hashim has not responded to the media inquiry. A short time after the media inquiry was sent, Mohammed Hashim removed all public posts from his Facebook page.
