On October 10, author Tarek Fatah posted screenshots showing that Zunera Ishaq, who has become the (covered) face of the drive to permit the wearing of face coverings during Canadian citizenship ceremonies, has links to radical Muslim groups.
At my blog, I have written about the ICNA previously.
A little about the ICNA:
“The press release also recounted some of the views expressed at the aforementioned ICNA meeting. These included an exhortation that “Islam must be translated into political dominance”; pleas for support for “jihad” in “Chechnya, Kashmir, Palestine, Iraq [against U.S. forces], southern Sudan, and … in Bosnia/Kosova [sic]”; an appeal for unity among Pakistani Muslims against “Hindu Brahmins and Zionist Jews”; and an endorsement of Muslim women’s inclusion in carrying out jihad.”
Zunera Ishaq is employed by the ICNA Sisters, a branch of the ICNA.
Among the guests at the ICNA -ffiliated Al Falah Institute ("liked" by Zunera Ishaq) has been Khalid Yasin, who says AIDS was created in America and used by Christian missionaries to infect Africans.
The Al Falah Islamic Centre also hosted Bilal Phillips and Hakim Quick, both of whom have called the murder of gays justified in Islam.
The ICNA dominates the Thorncliffe Park Parents Association. I suspect the ICNA is heavily involved in the anti-sex-ed curriculum demonstrations at the local schools.
Note that one of the Facebook groups that Zunera Ishaq has joined, Jamaat-e-Islami, is the terrorist organization that was being funded by ISNA Canada.
ISNA had its charitable status revoked by the Canada Revenue Agency for funding Jamaat-e-Islami, because it is recognized as an officially designated terrorist entity by our government.
Zunera Ishaq is affiliated with the ICNA Sisters and also with the MCNA (Muslim Children Of North America) operated by the ICNA Sisters.
I first posted on the ICNA Sisters and the MCNA several years ago. The site has since been stripped of the documents, which I retain in my possession.
It is a rigid, almost militaristic organization that tracks the habits of its members in a cult like manner, as evidenced by this document, “Islamic Circle of North America Canada Sister’s Wing Monthly Individual Report Form for Members.”
A main focus of the group is Dawah or "calling to the faith" -- what a Christian might call "missionary work."The methodology is explained in the following document: "Islamic Circle of North America Canada Sister’s Wing."
I find it odd that the MCNA makes no mention of the veil being a requirement for students. In fact, it is explicitly stated that the face and hands are not to covered in this document, "Proper Islamic Clothing for Girls."
Zunera Ishaq belongs to a Quran Study Group. You can see it listed in the “Group” section of her Facebook page.
The name of the group is مطالعہ تفہیم القرآن roughly translated to Quran Study.
The group’s timeline is filled with Jihadist propaganda such as this:\
Believe that Muslim face coverings have no place in Canada?
