In the news: Liberal Muslims criticize Little Mosque

From Tarek Fatah and Farzana Hasan in the Toronto Star:

  • Little masquerade on the prairie
    “Indeed all of the depictions point to an Islamist agenda that seeks to justify inequities that pervade Muslim communities under the pretext of progress. Orthodox Islam is presented as the only authentic belief system that is in consonance with progress. While the Muslim characters are fake, fellow non-Muslim Canadians, who have shown tremendous generosity in embracing peoples of different cultures and religions are continually and unfairly portrayed as paranoid bigots.”
