Liberal MP Iqra Khalid admitted recently on camera that there is no actual definition for “Islamophobia” as referenced in the controversial motion M-103.
Here is the exact statement made by Khalid in the above video:
Reporter: “Do you think you could have allayed the conservatives concerns by putting a definition of Islamophobia between a couple of comments in the motion?”
Iqra Khalid: “I’m really looking forward to the committee making that decision.”
Reporter: “But you haven’t answered my question…”
Iqra Khalid: “I don’t think so, no. (Turns away from reporter) Any more questions?”
Other Reporters: “We want an answer to that.”
Iqra Khalid: “Ok, what was your question?”
Reporter: “So why couldn’t you put a definition of Islamophobia between a couple of comments in the motion?”
Iqra Khalid: “No, it was a really collaborative effort amongst all Canadians and amongst all parliamentarians and I was not able to find a consensus. And like I said before, you know, a lot of grass roots organizations came forward”.
This is very alarming for many Canadians because it essentially means that any criticism of Islam could easily fall under the label of “Islamophobia”.
