In trying to blame Muslims for the Toronto van attack, Islamophobes were once again exposed as racists and bigots with no leg to stand on
It is now well established that whenever a Muslim commits a crime, it is branded terrorism but when a non-Muslim does the same, he is called a ‘lone wolf’, ‘nutcase’ and other such excuses are offered.
Despite its peaceful image, there is widespread Islamophobia in Canada including in many of its academic institutions.
Black History Month is now well established in the US and Canada but it only ‘celebrates’ establishment-approved figures, not the true revolutionaries.
It would be wrong to assume that Islamophobia in Canada is a recent phenomenon. It has a very long history and dates back to the time when first Muslims set foot here.
