Transcript of Muslim Rights and Freedoms

Brief history
"Although Muslims have been living for decades in Canada, they became highly visible in the public eye after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001" (Jamil, 1).
Due to events like terrorist attacks and bombings, the Canadian public seems to have an extremely negative perception of Muslim people (Razack, 1).
case 1:


In February 2015, Judge Eliana Marengo refused to hear Rania El-Alloul's protest to the impound of her car, because she refused to remove her Hijab (Rukavina, 1).
case 2:
Quebec mosque shooting
"Witnesses recall the doors being opened some time between 7:30 and 7:45. By 7:50, some inside heard a commotion outside one of the entrances to the prayer room. There, Mamadou Tanou Barry and Ibrahima Barry were the first ones killed by the gunman, who then went inside the room and continued shooting. The attack lasted only a few minutes" (Lum, 1).

"The mosque has been targeted by racist and anti-immigrant vandalism in the past. Last summer, during Ramadan, a pig’s head was left at the front door with a card saying 'bonne appétit'" (Lum, 1).

"The same rules need to be applied to everyone. I will therefore not hear you if you are wearing a scarf on your head, just as I would not allow a person to appear before me wearing a hat or sunglasses on his or her head, or any garment not suitable for a court proceeding"~Judge Marengo (Rukavina, 1).
"I feel that I'm not Canadian anymore"~El-Alloul (Rukavina, 1).
