Dear Hon. Marlene Jennings,
Thank you for your time to reply but your letter did not address the issues about the burka being a symbol of Islamist domination, so I have forwarded a very small selection of articles, videos and quotes (copied below)
“Every time a serious question is raised on the freedom of religion in our country, the Supreme Court rules … it is a fundamental right for all Canadians” — The Hon. Marlene Jennings, PC, MP
Female Genital Mutilation is compulsory under Islamic Law (Sharia) but Canadian values have triumphed over “freedom of religion” to ensure this demeaning religious act is illegal in our country.
Religious freedom is specifically enshrined in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms..— The Hon. Marlene Jennings, PC, MP
The burka is not required under Shaira law and therefore the wearing of it need not be enshrined in the Canadian Charter.
“…our courts have also clearly established that, when the well-being of a child is endangered by religious practices …” — The Hon. Marlene Jennings, PC, MP
Under the burka no one knows if it’s a woman or child and no one can see their suffering. The burka enslaves and isolates.
Islamists are working hard to achieve domination of women, children, apostates, non-Muslims and homosexuals. In almost every mosque around the world, Muslims pray daily for the destruction of non-Muslim (Christian, Jews, Infidel and Kafir).
We must be able to distinguish between those who live in Canada as friends, and those who are here to dominate. It’s not about a piece of cloth, it’s about Islamism, an *ideology* which leaves misery in it’s wake. Today, there are 56 intolerant and oppressive Islamic States.
Canadian Copts, marched publicly with a clear message against the Muslim Egyptian government which has allowed their Christian community to be the target of Islamist torment and terror. In support of Copts, please condemn Islamist Supremacy in Egypt and beyond. Please commit to our Canadian values and oppose the demands and symbols of Islamists.
Ban the Burka.
