Storm Track Disinformation: Speaking of Muslim Tolerance

Syed Soharwardy is organizing Calgary's first ever Muslim women's convention. Here’s the 411 on the conference from Sun Media.

"Muslim women are equal participants in our affairs, are equally respected in the Muslim community," said Soharwardy.

For the past three years, a similar convention has been held in Mississauga, Ont., said Soharwardy.

He said another goal of the meet is to encourage women to bring their domestic problems to the fore, while encouraging participants to spread a message of enlightenment to their home countries.

"They'll go back to the countries of their birth and challenge those people who are still abusing women," said Soharwardy.

It's hoped the gathering will also help women overcome the cultural shock felt by some immigrants unaccustomed to playing an active role in the community, he said.

Wonderful words right? One problem. Syed Soharwardy is facing human rights complaints for discrimination against women.

We as women and members of the visible minority are writing to you about unfair and unequal treatment given to us at a general meeting convened by the Al-Madinah Management Committee that was chaired by Syed Badi-uddin Soharwardy, National President of the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada (ISCC), Muslim Against Terrorism (MAT), This meeting was held as an open house on Sunday, November 11, 2007 between 3-5 pm at Al-Madinah Calgary Islamic Centre, 5700 Falsebridge Drive NE, Calgary, Alberta to discuss certain serious allegations, community issues and future plans.

We were discriminated as women and were treated poorly, differently, negatively and adversely by the Directors and Officers of Al-Madinah Calgary Islamic Centre, Islam Supreme Council of Canada (ISCC), Muslim Against Terrorism (MAT), Al-Madinah Dar-Ul-Aloom Ltd and Al-Madinah Calgary Islamic Assembly. In this meeting we were treated diferently from men in the following manner:

  • Abusive language uttered towards us;
  • Not permitted to ask any questions;
  • Danied participation as equal members of the Muslim community;
  • Physically and verbally threatened; made to sit in the back of the hall;
  • Accused of disrupting and subotaging the proceedings;
  • Forced to vacate the pemises;
  • Followed-up by obscene and threatening phone calls and letters in the mail.

Overall, there was a lack of respect for the women attending the meeting through intimidation, harassment and abusive behaviour.

Meanwhile, Mr. Soharwardy has been spreading the tolerance of Islam around in Canada. Specifically, directed at Ezra Levant, a magazine publisher in Alberta who published an article two years ago, and included 'those' cartoons which caused such a ruckus in Denmark.

1. Two years ago, the now-defunct Western Standard magazine reprinted the Danish cartoons of Mohammed. I was the publisher.

2. In response, a radical Muslim imam named Syed Soharwardy asked the Calgary Police Service to arrest me. They didn't, of course. So Soharwardy complained to the Alberta Human Rights Commission, a government agency. Here's his hand-scrawled complaint; here's my reply. For two years, using government lawyers and taxpayers money, they have been pursuing me, infringing on my natural rights of free speech, freedom of the press and freedom of religion.

3. On January 11th, a government "human rights officer" interrogated me for 90 minutes. Instead of bowing my head, I used the opportunity to challenge the moral and legal basis of the complaint, and the human rights commission itself.

4. I recorded the interrogation and posted video clips to YouTube. In the past week, they have been viewed nearly 400,000 times and were at one point the fifth most watched videos on all of YouTube. Though Canadian talk radio shows and op-ed columnists have covered the story well, I have seen only one newspaper report on the subject. I can't understand why mainstream reporters and editors do not think it's newsworthy that a publisher can be summoned by a government bureaucrat, and grilled as to his political thoughts. I'm pleased, though, that the support from pundits has come not just from the right, but from the enlightened left.

Sounds a lot like LionHeart’s persecution in the UK. This is litigation Jihad at its worst.

  • Missaugua, huh? That's where Aqsa Parvez was murdered by her Muslim father (a Pakistani cabbie, if I recall correctly) who was against her assimilation into Western society. Subsequent to Aqsa's murder, a Canadian "civil rights" group started beating the drum of family violence.
