Canada: Imam Denounces Free Speech, Trudeau Agrees

Article Link:

Canadian PM talks “respect” for Muslims, while Imam issues veiled threats. Samuel Paty, the French schoolteacher who was recently beheaded for showing his class a cartoon of Islam’s prophet Muhammad, was a “cursed individual,” an “evil-spirited man,” a “filthy excuse for a human being,” according to the Canada-based imam and Islamic scholar Younus Kathrada. The learned imam complained that Muslims had objected to Muhammad cartoons for years, but “nobody bothered listening.” However, Kathrada quickly picked up an ally who echoed his remarks, albeit more mildly: asked about the cartoons, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said, “Freedom of expression is not without limits.” Those limits include, apparently, material that offends Muslims.
