Canada Passes Sharia ‘Anti-Blasphemy’ Law

Fact checked
Canada passes harsh blasphemy bill imposing sharia law type conditions on citizens

Canada passed a motion this week that will outlaw any type of criticism of Islam, in a move viewed by many as bringing the country one step closer to Sharia law. 

Despite the fact that an overwhelming majority of 71% of Canadians opposed the new measure, MPs in Canada’s Parliament passed the ‘M-103’ bill with a majority 201 to 91.

The new law will see any citizen who criticises Islam arrested and charged with “Islamophobia” – a crime that can potentially see offenders end up in prison. reports:

A petition on CitizenGo asking MPs to stop the “restrictive ‘anti-blasphemy’” motion has been signed by 79,500 people.

“This motion will encourage legislation that would criminalize speech deemed ‘islamophobic’ and lay the groundwork for imposing what is essentially a Sharia anti-blasphemy law on all of Canada,” the petition states.

“If that happens, criticism of Islam would constitute a speech crime in Canada,” it states, adding that this “kind of content-based, viewpoint-discriminatory censorship is unacceptable in a Western liberal democracy.”

As LifeSiteNews reports, while the motion does not change existing laws or create new ones, it empowers a committee to study the issue of “eliminating…Islamophobia” and the federal government to collect data on Islamic ‘hate crimes’ for further study.

A Conservative alternative to the motion that condemned racism and discrimination against Muslims, Jews, Christians, and other religious groups — without including the word “Islamophobia” — was defeated by the Liberals in February. Liberals argued at that time that the Tories were simply trying to “water down” the very purpose of M-103, reported Huffington Post.

A number of Conservatives running for the the party’s leadership have been outspoken about the problems they see in M-103.

Brad Trost said he could not support the motion because it “will only serve to strengthen extremist elements within the Muslim community itself that seek to preserve and promote their own form of hate and intolerance.” He added that any “serious plan to combat religious discrimination in Canada should include all faith groups, including Christians and Jews.”

Pierre Lemieux said that Canadians should be wary of the language in the motion.

“Do you have a valid concern about Islam? Do you disagree with Sharia Law? Uneasy about radical Islamic terrorism? The Liberals may very well classify you as Islamophobic,” he wrote in an email to supporters.

Lemieux, who called on supporters to pressure MPs to force a recorded vote on M-103, called it a “great day for accountability and for freedom of speech in Canada” when almost two dozen MPs stood up on Tuesday to demand such accountability.

Leadership contender Andrew Scheer also added his voice of opposition to the motion shortly before the vote, saying that it “could be interpreted as a step towards stifling free speech and legitimate criticism” of Islam.

“M-103 is not inclusive. It singles out just one faith. I believe that all religions deserve the same level of respect and protection,” he wrote in an email to supporters.

“I will be voting against it because I believe in Freedom of Speech,” he wrote.

  1. Dear Canada, it is time to clean house. Your leaders have let you down. The calls for their immediate removal of their position.

    • Try that here in the U.S. and we’ll see who’s heads roll…….It won’t be Americans. We can say whatever the fuck we want and as soon as they try to make our thoughts and words illegal, that will be the day we take out all who is favor of that, no matter WHO they are.

  2. Right Law. Nobody should be allowed to hurt others in the name of freedom of thought. This Law will take the ammo out of radicals in Muslim world and will encourage a responsible and educated discussion about Islam in West. No other religion is lambasted in West as Islam for the last 1300 years.

    • Either your an uneducated idiot or a Muslim! No one is bashing Muslims! We’re pissed off because we’re tired of being forced to roll over for the Islamic ideaology! It’s NOT Muslims heads that are rolling right now!!!!

  3. I’m an Amican living in Canada and yes, most of the people here are more concerned with being politically correct than awake. But that’s changing. 71% of Canadian’s oppose this law. Law or no law, I will continue to speak up against the terrorism & violence Islam represents, jail or no jail!!! Guess that’s my American spirit speaking!

  4. consider your political careers over, forever………we know who vote for the motion…….you will never be back…… have abused our power for the last time…… soon as liberals are out, this will be reversed.
