In a video from 2012 currently going viral, Egyptian cleric, Mazen Al-Sersawi, claims that under Sharia law, certain forms of incest are okay.
This follows on the heels of another Egyptian cleric, Muftah Mohammad Maarouf, who stated that even newborn babies could be married to a mature man since Sharia doesn’t set an age for marriage.
Numerous Muslims find such interpretations of Sharia law repugnant, but in the age of M-103, would flagging such an issue make one guilty of Islamophobia?
The architects of M-103 didn’t define it, but consider the Toronto District School Board’s definition adapted for Islamic Heritage Month in October:
Fear, prejudice, hatred or dislike directed against Islam or Muslims, or towards Islamic politics or culture.
Prejudice and hatred directed at individual Muslims is reprehensible, but according to the TDSB, you’re also an Islamophobe if you object to Islamic politics or cultural practices, even those that may be barbaric.
This is the slippery slope we’re on thanks to an unholy alliance between radical Islam and progressives who serve as their useful idiots.
