NCCM is asking the Canadian government to ban officials from India who have called for racist and genocidal violence against Muslims and other minorities in India.
These 13 individuals, all members of India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), should be banned from entering Canada under Section 35 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act. They are among the loudest voices calling for ethnic cleansing and violence against India’s minority Muslim population. Most are leading BJP figures. Their administration ...

The problem started in 2013, when the then Harper administration privatized the federal prison chaplaincy system by eliminating all 49 part-time chaplains and handing over all responsibilities to a for-profit company.
Those eliminated positions represented many chaplains serving minority faith prisoners who feel like their needs have been increasingly marginalized in the following years. Our new report, co-presented ...
On Wednesday, May 11, veteran journalist Shireen Abu Aqla was killed while wearing a press vest on assignment in the occupied West Bank. This attack on a journalist and their ability to report is a violation of international law.

The death of Abu Aqla points to the immediate need for an impartial and thorough investigation by the ICC ...

On March 10 2022, Canada’s Minister of International Trade, Mary Ng, met with her counterpart, Minister Piyush Goyal, in New Delhi. The two discussed working towards an Early Progress Trade Agreement. Minister Goyal of the BJP is someone with known links to the RSS, India's main Hindu nationalist organization tied to acts of communal violence against India's Muslims and ...
On June 6, 2021, three generations of one family were killed in an Islamophobic terror attack in London, Ontario. In the aftermath of this unspeakable loss, Ontarians heard their political leaders make bold and unequivocal statements about eradicating Islamophobia and hate from their province. Now, we are asking them to take action.
The Our London Family Act (Bill 86), as proposed by the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM), is a way to take clear and reasonable action against Islamophobia in Canada. It was introduced by the Ontario NDP on February 23rd and ...
The ongoing demolitions and evictions taking place across Palestine by Israeli-state authorities are a gross violation of international law. Despite numerous independent international agencies calling for these practises to end, Israel has not ceased in their actions.
Palestinians are in a constant fight to keep their homes. It is time Canada stepped up to its international obligations and pushed Israel to halt the evictions of Palestinians and end the expansion of illegal settlements.
