In a new interview with iPolitics.ca, Senator Mobina Jaffer states that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau's murder of Corporal Nathan Cirillo on Parliament Hill last October "was not a terrorist attack."
In the interview, Jaffer is quoted as saying:
“This was not a terrorist attack, what happened to us. Come on, people are laughing at us around the world. This was some young man who had mental issues. I know his mosque, because I helped build it,” said Jaffer.
“I know the mosque where he was and they didn’t throw him out because he had some terrorist issues, they threw him out because he was stealing and breaking in to the mosque every night to sleep there. Even they knew he was a disturbed person. And now, as the result of one person with mental issues, a whole community is suffering.
“It’s an excuse.”
Jaffer compared Prime Minister Stephen Harper to one of his predecessors, Jean Chretien, who appointed her in 2001, making her Canada's first Muslim senator.
Chretien "listened to us. He had an open mind.”
In contrast, she says, the Harper government's move to prevent women from wearing niqabs during citizenship ceremonies is "rooted in a culture that is anti-women. That is unacceptable to Canadians, unacceptable to Canadian women.”
Jaffer added, "I'm just thankful there's an election coming."
