Controversial Muslim Columnist Accuses Islamic Party of Ontario Head Of Uttering Death Threat

But It Could Also Be Part Of Tarek Fatah’s Ongoing Attacks On Members Of His Own Community!

“Non-Muslim readers, even police and politicians, would not know the significance of the allegation, but every Muslim on earth is aware of the implications of accusing a Muslim of being an ‘Islamophobe’ or being “open enemy of Islam,” Fatah wrote in a recent column.

TORONTO – Controversial Muslim columnist Tarek Fatah is accusing the head of Canada’s newest aspiring political party, the Islamic Party of Ontario, of uttering death threat against him.

The Islamic Party of Ontario, its name was officially reserved under Elections Ontario rules in October 2018, with more steps required before it becomes a formal party.

It operates with a mandate to introduce Islamic rule in Ontario and Canada because, according to the fledgling party, “We understand and believe that Islam is the native DEEN (religion) of Ontario and Canada.”

The Islamic Party of Ontario is headed by one Jawed Anwar, who operates out of the Toronto neighborhood of Thorncliffe Park.

Fatah alleges that in a column posted at the end of October targeting American activist Laura Loomer, Anwar described Fatah as “… Islamophobe Tareek (sic) Fatah in Toronto Sun. Tareek is an open enemy of Islam and a hate-purveyor.”

Fatah goes on to make wild accusations that could all be a figment of his imagination but he uses the Islamic decree “open enemy of Islam” as his only evidence that he has been marked for death.

“Non-Muslim readers, even police and politicians, would not know the significance of the allegation, but every Muslim on earth is aware of the implications of accusing a Muslim of being an ‘Islamophobe’ or being “open enemy of Islam,” Fatah wrote in a recent column.

“An allegation such as the one labelled against me is the equivalent of declaring me an ‘apostate,’ which makes it a duty of other Muslims to kill me and thus secure a place in Paradise for themselves.

“For those who are living in 2019 and the 21st century, this may sound like a joke. But those who are still living as if it is 1019 in the 11th century, the beheading of an alleged Muslim apostate is part of their heritage and faith,” Fatah further alleged.

He claimed he wrote to Jawed Anwar to seek his perspective and clarification, if any, “but he didn’t respond to my repeated requests,” he wrote.

Fatah further warned his readers in the rightwing newspaper Toronto Sun that “before this Trojan Horse can enter the gates of mainstream Toronto and Ontario politics by the ever-eager diversity-seeking politicians, perhaps you, the voters need to know what the Islamic Party of Ontario claims to desire in Canada, according to their posted principles and policies.”

Establish Islam as the natural religion of Ontario.

Quash LGBTQ rights because “God made Adam and Eve –not Adam and Steve.”

A complete ban on abortion except in a situation when a mother’s life is in danger.

End the concept of “gender identity” or “seven-colour gender,” a false concept.

Ban liquor, drugs, adultery, and gambling.

Happy New Year Canada. Let us weed out the merchants of misery who seek death as a means of salvation.
