Khurrum Awan is the youth president of the Canadian Islamic Congress and blogger Ezra Levant in Calgary described him as Jew- hating. Ezra is a journalist and has long criticized the Human Rights commissions for their support of the Canadian Islamic Congress but he has now been sued for defamation and libel for one such attack. Details are on his blog here. Ezra accuses Khurrum Awan and others of "conducting a soft jihad of 'lawfare', the abusive practice where lawsuits are filed against critics of radical Islam just to harass them and silence them, Erin Brockovich-style." As I've noted elsewhere on this site, free speech is not allowed in Islamic countries and it seems they are trying to spread this abuse to western countries.
As I've said repeatedly, when immigrants come to Canada, they must leave their barbaric traditions and practices behind and accept Canadian values. If they don't like it, they should go home. I have several items on free speech here: No free speech in Bangladesh - Hitchens on Free speech - Free speech does not apply if you are a theist .
This lawsuit needs to get worldwide publicity so that this practice can get stopped in free countries. Ezra may have the resources to fight this - but not everyone practicing the right of free speech has the ability to defend against this type of attack.
