In 2014, the Muslim Student’s Association of York University handed out a book condoning wife beating. A former President of the same student organization is now pushing a bill to make Islamophobia illegal in Canada.
Iqra Khalid was born in Pakistan and moved to Canada in the 1990’s. She is a Liberal Member of Parliament, a Muslim, and a former President of York University’s MSA.
Interestingly enough, despite noting her work as President of a Pakistani student club, her official Liberal Party website makes no mention of her work as President of the York University Muslim Student’s Association.
Allow us to make the political reasoning for this quite clear.
Pictured above is a table at a 2014 event put on by York University’s Muslim Students Association. There are several photos of the book in question on the association’s Facebook page.
The entirety of this book, written by one Abdul Rahman Al-Sheha, is available online for you to read in its entirety.
Here are some of the most repulsive excerpts.
Lovely. And here is a choice bit of victim blaming:
Another page is devoted to honour killings.The implication seems to be that if we only would allow stoning and beating of women who commit fornication or adultery, there would be no need for murdering women through honour killings!
And on the lesser credibility given to women’s testimony in Islam:
While Iqra Khalid wishes to curtail free speech by using absurdly broad “Islamophobia” laws, she was at one point president of an organization which is clearly pushing radical Islamist views in the present day.
We who value human rights and freedom of expression must demand an explanation from this elected official as well as this public university. Do you or do you not disavow these actions by the York University Muslim Student’s Association?
We will be reaching out both to York University and to Iqra Khalid’s office for comment and this article will be updated with any new information we receive.
