A Toronto Mayoral candidate is campaigning on a platform to make “Toronto safe again” from the growing presence of Muslim extremists in the city.

Muslim Extremism in Toronto

The Masjid Mosque in downtown Toronto is feared to be a a place where radical Islam is being taught and spread in Toronto. Torontonians concerned about this state of affairs are quite worried that their current Mayor, John Tory may win re-election. Tory has visited this Mosque many times and his focus has been that “Islamophobia has NO place in our city,” denouncing “all acts of hatred towards our Muslim citizens” while ignoring the central role Islam has placed in the terror attacks in Toronto.

Recent Terror in Toronto

Just Last Month a terror attack occured in Toronto by a Muslim man. However, the name of the Toronto shooter was withheld for a day, hiding his Muslim background. The moment it was released, a local reporter issued an official statement from “the family” that he was mentally ill, implying that the attack had nothing to do with Islam.

This is the attitude of the Toronto authorities that bother many Torontonians moving forward.

In response to this reality in Toronto, some Torontonians are now looking for a mayoral candidate who promises to put public safety above political correctness.

Speaking out Against the Growth of Radical Islam in Canada

Raheel Raza is a practicing Muslim who speaks out against radical Islam around the West, and its growth in Canada. Raza is a Pakistani-Canadian journalist, author, public speaker, media consultant, anti-racism activist, and interfaith discussion leader. She lives in Toronto, Canada.

“I had not set out to be a writer about Islamic issues – my original dream was to be a romantic writer. But when I saw the rise of Wahhabi/Salafism in Canada, I was dismayed. The mainstream non-Muslim community at that time had very little knowledge about Islam because, until the 1980s, Muslims were the ‘exotic other.’ Therefore, I started writing for The Toronto Star to educate both Muslims and non-Muslims about the spiritual message of the faith and to encourage immigrants to embrace the good in Canada.”

“In the past three decades, hundreds of young minds have been poisoned. In February 2010, the BBC aired a three-part documentary called Generation Jihad in which the producer traveled across North America speaking to radicalized youth. The producer warned of an entire generation of young Canadian and British Muslims who have been infected with the terrorism virus.”

“Canada’s citizens and authorities must come together, free themselves of the shackles of political correctness, and deal decisively with the threat of extremism coming from abroad, and arising in our midst. Revised approaches to law and policy might be among the answers to the problem of extremism and terror.”

“If we grapple sensibly with the extremist challenge, Canada can remain ‘strong and free,’ become a model for the rest of the world, and be a safe haven in which our children and grandchildren, can enjoy the benefits of being “Canadians first”.”
