Jawed Anwar, the leader of the Islamic Party of Ontario, said during a speech that was uploaded to the Internet on February 18, 2018 that public schools are “spiritual slaughterhouses” at which children learn liberal ideologies instead of facts and God-given guidance. He wondered why Canadians don’t obey God even though Canada is founded on recognition of the supremacy of God and the rule of law, and he wondered why some Muslims support liberal political parties. He said: “We Muslims believe… that Islam provides guidance for both private and public life. The Quran is the latest edition of the Bible, the book of guidance for all mankind.” He also criticized liberals and Canada’s Liberal Party for supporting “Muslims without Islam,” claiming that their solution to Islamophobia is the removal of Islam and its values from schools and society. Anwar delivered the speech at a political event endorsing Doug Ford for the Premier of Ontario.
