“The Difference Between Community And Religious Schools”, by Samer Majzoub

Article by Samer Majzoub

Another clear example of such misconceptions can be demonstrated by the confusion about the nature of Muslims or Islamic schools across Canada. There is general belief that these institutions are religious educational bodies, and the kind of courses taught is based on Islamic theology.

This is a false understanding. It is important to note that the majority of these schools are either don’t or only partially receive subventions from provincial authorities.

Canadian Muslim Forum president Samer Majzoub says it’s heart-breaking to see people who have ‘fled tyranny’ be mistreated here.

The attack has been labelled an act Islamophobia by Samer Majzoub, president of the Canadian Muslim Forum.
“What could this be, beside hatred or racism?” Majzoub said on CTV’s News Channel Saturday.
Unfortunately, attacks on Canadian Muslims are “not something new to the Canadian Muslim community,” Majzoub said, pointing to reports of hijab-wearing women being attacked in public places.
Majzoub repeated the prime minister’s message that the Vancouver attack “does not in any way reflect who we are as Canadians.”

*Samer Majzoub
The concept of radicalism that leads to violence through history has always, similar to all other philosophical doctrines, sought to justify its movement based on mainly social, economical and political reasoning.
“Religions” have been, in recent times, added to the catalogue that violent radicals use to legitimize their acts, and as mean of delivering their objections to what they consider “injustice.” This addition of “religious” reasoning to violent operations has made the subject much more sensitive, confusing and complicated.

For members of Quebec’s Muslim communities, the debate over the Syrian refugees highlights the distrust of them they say has been deepening for years.

“We don’t ask for the security to be compromised, but to associate (terrorism) with the Syrian refugees is so much injustice,” said Samer Majzoub, president of the Canadian Muslim Forum in Montreal, which advocates for Muslim interests across Canada.

DISTRUST

He said that Quebec appeared to have a higher level of distrust of its Muslims than other Canadian provinces, something he attributed to Quebec’s efforts to retain a distinct French culture in a mostly English-speaking country. Quebec has attempted to separate from the rest of Canada twice since 1980, arguing its laws, language and culture are unique.

“There is no doubt that the sentiment (of Islamophobia) here is felt much higher,” he said.
