Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Islamophobia has been fed by populism and the politics of division. “There are politicians who have been stoking hatred and division that we as a government have been pushing back against,” said Trudeau in an exclusive one-on-one interview with Global News’ Farah Nasser in Brampton, Ont., on Monday. The National Summit on Islamophobia is set to take place on July 22. According to the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM), since the targeted hate crime against a Muslim family in London, Ont., that left four dead and a nine-year-old boy orphaned, violent hate-filled attacks have been a daily occurrence in Canada. “The reality is that Canada has suffered more mass killings motivated by Islamophobia in the last five years than any other country in the G7,” says CEO of the National Council of Canadian Muslims Mustafa Farooq.
