There is a parliamentary Motion 103 to condemn Islamophobia and track incidents of hate crime against Muslims in Canada, scheduled for parliamentary debate in April. There is much concern about M-103 that specifically refers to “Islamophobia”, but leaves the term undefined and open to interpretation. This may inhibit freedom to critique Islam, and infringement on freedom of speech. As Christians, we must continue to denounce anti-Muslim hatred, and love our neighbours, including our Muslim neighbours, classmates or co-workers. But we need to express our concern about M-103 through email to our respective Member of Parliament for a balanced approach.
