The ongoing humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan is alarming.
Canada’s role in the Afghanistan crisis is indisputable. We owe it, after two decades of war and occupation, and to so many who lost loved ones and friends, to take action in the ongoing humanitarian crisis by expanding the numbers of refugees being brought to Canada.
Therefore, we are actively urging the federal government to respond to this crisis by:
Expanding commitments to accept and resettle refugees from 20,000 to at least 95,000 on an expedited ...
Last week was historic - we sat in a room with officials from each level of government, and proposed 61 policy recommendations to combat the challenges of Islamophobia in all of its forms. These recommendations were drawn from dozens of community consultations with organizations that represent hundreds of thousands of Canadian Muslims.
Alhamdullilah, a number of positive commitments were made, which are consistent with our recommendations.
However, more is clearly needed to address the many challenges in front of us.
We need you to do two things:
1. Send a ...
Demolitions have begun at Silwan by Israeli-state authorities even as numerous independent international agencies have called for forced evictions to end.
Silwan is a neighborhood in east Jerusalem adjacent to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, one of the most sacred places to Muslims internationally. It is estimated that 60% of the 1,500 Palestinian residents of Silwan in East Jerusalem who are about to be displaced by Israel are children.
The demolition of the neighbourhood of Silwan is in gross violation of international law.

NCCM Recommendations: National Summit on Islamophobia
More Muslims have been killed in targeted hate-attacks in Canada than any other G-7 country in the past 5 years because of Islamophobia.
That fact sunk in outside the London Muslim Mosque on June 8 of this year, when thousands of Londoners gathered in the aftermath of the terror attack that took the lives of four members of the Canadian Muslim community in an unthinkable act of Islamophobic violence. The thousands that gathered that day were there to show their solidarity, pray, and stand ...

On June 6, 2021, a man got in his truck with the pre-meditated intent to kill Muslims. He drove down a street in London and ran over a family who were waiting to cross the street at an intersection. He killed four members of the family – a grandmother, a mother, a father and a child – and he seriously injured a 9-year-old boy. They were the Afzal and Salman family of London, Ontario.
Their names will be etched in the hearts of Canadians for a long time. Muslims in Canada have become all ...
Write a letter today to the federal leaders of Canada regarding the recent reprehensible attacks and escalation of violence perpetrated by Israeli authorities on Palestinians.
Right now, Canada’s statements have been insufficient. Canada’s statement have not acknowledged the following human rights violations, which violate all norms and basic human dignity:
Attacks on journalists;
The bombing of humanitarian facilities, like the Red Crescent;
The killing of physicians, including those leading the fight against COVID in Palestine;
The blockage ...
Write a letter today to the Ontario Minister of Education and school boards to speak out against human rights violations in Palestine and support students and staff.
Since the end of Ramadan, our students continue to witness horrifying images and devastation in Palestine. The escalation of Israeli military violence on one of Islam’s holiest sites, the Al-Aqsa mosque, the dispossession and forced expulsion of Palestinians from their homes, and the attacks on civilian targets, including children cannot be ignored.
Students in our classrooms and staff in our ...

Tell the Federal Government to do more as after the attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.
Over the last week, the United Nations reaffirmed that international humanitarian law applied in occupied East Jerusalem and that Israel’s actions to evict and dispossess Palestinians in Sheikh Jarrah could amount to war crimes.
The videos and photos emerging from Jerusalem are absolutely clear. With impunity, Israeli forces violated the internationally recognized sanctity of the Al Aqsa Mosque, one of the most sacred sites for ...
We are writing today to call on the University of Toronto and its Faculty of Law to reinstate immediately the offer to Dr. Valentina Azarova to serve as the next Director of the International Human Rights Program. The Cromwell Report concluded that she was the “strong, unanimous, and enthusiastic first choice of the selection committee”. Moreover, the proffered reason for retracting the offer -- the timing of the work permit -- is no longer relevant.
While the Cromwell Report does not conclude that there was “improper outside influence” in the ultimate ...
