Vancouver imam condemns Halloween, Remembrance Day as “reprehensible”

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Vancouver Imam Younas Kathrada has made headlines for all the wrong reasons and a troubling October 30th post on his personal Facebook page is just the latest example.

Responding to an invitation for a Halloween related gathering at Victoria’s Masjid al-Iman mosque, Kathrada described Canadian holidays and traditions, from Halloween to Remembrance Day, to Thanksgiving and Christmas as “reprehensible” and “based on falsehood”.

Is this the kind of multiculturalism we want, or an example of tolerance in this country?

One can only hope not, yet, digging into this Imam’s past, we find all too familiar stories.

Watch as I share some of that history with you and provide samples of anti-semitic remarks that led to a police investigation for a hate crime and drew condemnation from other Muslim leaders.

Canadians take pride in the fact that we don’t force immigrants to conform to Canadian culture, but historically, almost all immigrant groups take to Canadian culture quickly.

But why is it that Imams like Kathrada insist on driving a wedge between their communities and Canadian culture? 

Surely this is the very problem sweeping across Europe, one that we've documented in the UK where self-segregated Islamic enclaves pose real concerns.

Canadian's shouldn’t be blinded by our own tolerance. Imams like Kathrada may be exercising their religious beliefs, but when it’s accompanied by the rejection of Canadian traditions, holidays and societal norms, its not what's best for the nation.

Every time I go shopping I grab a pack of pork chops and drop them on the Halal chicken.
Never eat halal food ! remember that orthodox conservative Muslims like this douche bag continue to wipe their @ss with their left hand even if there’s toilet paper handy . Orthodox Muslims working in halal butcher shops do the same . their washing before prayers is with water only – soap is haram – forbidden.
And I never eat food from a donair shop – ever !
They hate pigs but they are pigs !

People had better wake up to what our government has created in our beloved country. We have a limited amount of work and thanks to our government and the libtards running it we have free open borders allowing people that have no interest in joining our society. They have infiltrated our government, our school boards, our police forces and are using our own laws and common decency for our fellow man against us. Saying what we feel is deemed to be racist and some how uncanadian. It is coming to the point we will be forced to defend ourselves against these people who we have shown and welcomed with open arms. When the violence creeps into our neighbourhoods and threatens our families is when we will all be forced to fight back. They want to change our society to fit the life they left behind in their country. Our forefathers defended our country and soon it will be our time and it is coming very very soon. PREPARE YOURSELVES and get ready for the fight for our way of life here in Canada.

I can only hope that when M103 becomes law, Imams and other purveyors of 15th century Islam will be dealt with as severely for their anti-Semitism and other hate speak as fervently as those who condemn tenets of Islam. But I doubt M103 will be enforced equally.
Trudeau’s Canada will officially become an anti-Semitic country. The proof will be in the authorities ignoring anti-Semitism by Muslims while cracking down on anti-Islam speak by anyone.
Justin is licking his lips over that UN seat.

Oh yeah, Trudeau will have a hard on for this guy…maybe even give him some money…diversity, don’t don’t ya know

Funny but our national grocery stores and food producers can’t rush quickly enough to fill their shelves and flyers with halal food and advertisements. Oh look at us , how diverse and accomadating we are to the muslim cultural norms.
When they gain more power, they will prohibit all our cultural festivals , especially those associated with religion. And the next step will be to actively enforce their prohibitions and displace our culture.
commented 2017-11-08 09:42:50 -0500
Why and how do people like this end up here? Immigrate to a country you find completely reprehensible…and be allowed in to spread this shit.

Check out Annie Cyrus on you tube if you want some inside information on how women are treated under sharia.
She is intelligent and beautiful.

I sense that maybe the good Imam would like to turn Remembrance Day as to one remembering his favourite goat?
commented 2017-11-08 01:01:06 -0500
Andrew Stephenson funny how i have never seen you criticize or even comment when it is Muslims talking about killing gays or subjugating women, only when we disagree with abortion or when you want to hate on us for our toxic masculinity. Why is that? Are you a well trained sheep who only criticizes who your peers will approve of? Afraid someone you know may see you say the WRONG OPINION?
Or are you simply a hypocrite?
commented 2017-11-08 00:54:48 -0500
Andrew Stephenson to be fair you better not complain when Imams make you cover your head and sit in the back.

@ REBELATION REBELATION – we are at war with our own Canadian POS PM TruDope & his gang of Libtarded lunatics – that POS PM is guilty of treason – & the punishment for tyrannical treason is either the firing squad or a rope necktie. However seeing as we have so many cuck rcmp people, protecting this useless arrogantly ignorant POS, the war may get a bit ugly.
That POS PM lied to President Trump – saying that he is interested only in protecting Canadian’s interests – in regard to NAFTA – has anyone out there felt any protection coming from that POS Prime Muslim?

Well, mr imam – you had better pack your shit & go back to the shit hole you crawled out of! Your going to become victim to the ingestion of a lead pill – after you get your sorry stinking ass kicked so hard you won’t be able to find it!!!
Sounds like these barbarians are itching for a cowboy & musloid war – it ain’t gonna be pretty!!!

Kathrada should be Deported Immediately, with no legal opposition available to him. He doesn’t like our holidays and traditions, GOODBYE.
commented 2017-11-07 23:18:49 -0500
We’re at war with those promoting the global caliphate. This Imam is to be taken prisoner and held til the war is *over, as per the Int’l Rules of Engagement.
  • the war is over when there’s not one person in the West so much as mumbling ‘sharia’ under their breath).

Space Moose. So you’re ceding to them? Why don’t you just start screaming repeatedly “kill-joy” at them?
commented 2017-11-07 22:05:14 -0500
I hate that morons are stripping the fun out of Halloween.

@ William Elder, “At best these caliphate colonizers are indifferent to the cultures they are subverting.”
That is giving them too much credit, unless they are apostates. They are taught from birth that they are superior. If there were any orthodox Muslims who were indifferent ,and that is like an oxymoron, they would have no interest in our mandatory submission, and mandatory submission is the goal. They don’t want to live in Canada, they want to change Canada into an Islamic country. You are right, we know why they come here.

It has never been more important for Canadians to hold onto their traditions. Lots of holiday’s coming up to enjoy and make a fuss about. Crazy. This country has gone mad.

Is this what Trudeau and his disreputable crew of sycophants and toadies in the Liberal caucus, mean when they say, “Diversity is our Strength?”
commented 2017-11-07 21:42:45 -0500
These Imams have become emboldened under Jihadi Justin. How much do you want to bet that they are going to really push for Islamic holidays, while taking ours away? They’ve been working on it for decades now. This is part of the process of Islamification of the countries they are taking over. All with the assistance of our corrupt globalist leaders.

Hpb 3515 commented – " if our culture is offensive to them, come here in the first place?"

You already know the answer to that.

Something like that Lee Horsman. That is some immigration system we have in Canada! I would like to blame it all on Justin and Hussen, but it started with Harper and Kenny.
Look what happened while we were sleeping. Well, we are fully awake now and see things for what they are, see Islam for what it is. Most Canadians do not want this, I pray that it shows next election day. We are cutting it pretty close to the wire Canada.
commented 2017-11-07 21:05:03 -0500
Simply put if the motivation to Immigrate to Canada is for a better life..

Than why, if our culture is offensive to them, come here in the first place?
commented 2017-11-07 20:50:20 -0500
So I guess there were no red flags for anti-Canadian values when this person was screened for entry to Canada.
Or, maybe he was let in without any screening at all.
commented 2017-11-07 20:49:32 -0500
To be fair? You kidding me? Geez you are losing it Andrew.
Here watch this, if you have the patience. You may learn something. It is not all in Polish. One of the best interviews with Tommy Robinson talking about the threat of Islam that I have seen.
commented 2017-11-07 20:34:11 -0500
If it is so offensive to them, why do these musloids come to Canada. Better yet, why do we take them in???
commented 2017-11-07 20:25:36 -0500
Sure Andrew, go with that. You have nothing so being a typical loser Libtard you deflect to some insane lie. You are a moron.
commented 2017-11-07 20:14:23 -0500
To be fair, the only conservative premier in country has said some pretty similar things about halloween.

Why is Kathrada spending so much time in Malaysia?
Strange he uses the word reprehensible when describing our holidays and traditions, sounds to me like he needs to go back to his country of origin.
He can’t help himself, the supremacist attitude has been duly noted; when will the attendees at his mosque insist he curb this?!!!! I know, it’s not going to happen!
