Isn’t it refreshing to hear a little bit of common sense?
Some Muslim families in Canada want their children to be exempted from music and gym because they feel the curriculum is un-Islamic. Apparently, the school in question is trying to adapt to meet the demands of the families. A Muslim professor is having none of it, and offers some common sense advice that’s all too rare these days.
Mahfooz Kanwar, a member of the Muslim Canadian Congress, says he has some better ideas.
“I’d tell them, this is Canada, and in Canada, we teach music and physical education in our schools. If you don’t like it, leave. If you want to live under sharia law, go back to the hellhole country you came from or go to another hellhole country that lives under sharia law,” said Kanwar, who is a professor emeritus of sociology at Mount Royal University in Calgary.
