Free Islamic books in Toronto challenge Trudeau’s narrative on peaceful Islam
Canada’s Liberal government deems Islam as a religion of peace which has nothing to do with any violent activities or terrorism carried out in the name of Islam.
In an interview with CBC on November 24, 2015, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said: “Canadians are quick to point out that ISIS is wrong, that Islam is not incompatible with the Western secular democracy, a free place like Canada.”
Furthermore, Trudeau believes that the federal government has an obligation to educate Canadians that the religion Islam is compatible with Western valueless of democracy and liberalism.
“We need to make sure that we’re working with communities like the Muslim community for example to demonstrate that Islam is not incompatible with free and open Western societies,” Trudeau said in an interview with CBC on January 31, 2016.
During the Maclean’s Town Hall (December 16, 2015), Trudeau emphasized that Muslims should not be blamed of terrorist acts committed by ISIS and other groups because they are the greatest victims of terrorism. “[I’m] talking directly about the Muslim community. They are predominantly the greatest victims of terrorist acts around the world at the present time. And painting ISIS and others with a broad brush that extends to all Muslims is not just ignorant, it is irresponsible,” said Trudeau.
