Attention Muslims! Must Stop Canada’s Bill C-6

Attention Muslims! Must Stop Canada’s Bill C-6 

Jawed Anwar

CALL and write your MP now to whom you voted in the last Federal election. Time is too short. Tell them we will not vote for you in the next election if this bill passed in Parliament. Share this article widely.

The day when its third reading and final voting on Liberal Federal Bill C-6 has to be done last year, God’s wrath forced the Parliament to close due to the Covid-19 outbreak. That time, it was suspended. 

Now Bill C-6 is back in the House of Commons on last Monday for its third reading, and it may come up for a vote soon any day. 

Canadian Muslims are currently engaged in heavily consuming the news related to the Covid-19 pandemic and vaccination. Now, the tragic attack of a white supremacist on a Muslim family that killed four persons of a family is the most focused news.

Yes! All this news is disturbing. But those bills and laws should be more worrisome for us that destroy the spiritual life of our generations. 

The first-generation Muslim immigrants will be responsible on the day of judgement if something goes wrong with their generation because the decision to migrate here is their own decision.  

When the bill presented to the Parliament, We warned and written a column on it on March 11, 2020; Liberals Massive Attack on Our Religious Rights

 

Stop the ban, a project of campaign life coalition writes:

“Bill C-6 opens the door to a whole new level of censorship and thought-control. It may even lead to censoring – and banning – the Bible (including all religious books) itself!

Bill C-6 is designed to eliminate certain politically incorrect ideas, beliefs, and viewpoints from Canadian society by entrenching a totalitarian law in our Criminal Code. This law will discriminate against Evangelicals, Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Social Conservatives, and anyone who holds a traditional view on sexuality and gender. This law will also discriminate against ex-LGBT individuals. It is a form of thought-control and political suppression.

This bill is completely unacceptable in a free and democratic society. It must be stopped now.”

 

Parent As First Educators (PAFE) writes:

We must ensure that this draconian legislation is defeated!

The idea of Bill C-6 passing into law is terrifying!

It will ban what the Justin Trudeau government defines as “conversion therapy.” But, it has deceptively defined that term as any counselling or conversation that doesn’t enthusiastically affirm same-sex attraction or the “gender transition” process, which will send children down the path of puberty blockers, hormone treatments, and surgery. 

It will punish parents, professional or religious counsellors with up to five years imprisonment for trying to help a child during a time of confusion.

Yes, you read that correctly. Five years in jail for parents trying to help their children! 

C-6 is totalitarianism in practice and is being advanced by those who will stop at nothing to promote the triumph of radical gender ideology.

It is unacceptable and un-Canadian to seek to legislate the control of private conversations, even family conversations, under the misleading guise of a ban on conversion therapy.

C-6 will usher in an era of legislative child abuse, and the number of human tragedies it will create is unthinkable. 

This bill will make ruining the lives of children easier, while at the same time eroding the rights of those who would protect the children.”

Unfortunately, this legislation has broad support in Parliament, with only a handful of Conservatives opposing it at second reading. However, some Conservatives who otherwise support the bill have said they’re concerned it overreaches and could criminalize good-faith conversations with a religious leader. Some progressives have also criticized the bill for still allowing conversion therapy programs for consenting adults.

We ask the Muslim parents, grandparents, religious leaders, move forward and take a firm stand on this issue. 

 

What is “conversion therapy”?

According to the definition provided in the text of Bill C-6, conversion therapy is “a practice, treatment or service designed to change a person’s sexual orientation to heterosexual or gender identity to cisgender, or to repress or reduce non-heterosexual attraction or sexual behaviour.”

In the past, conversion therapy was a term used for electroshock therapy, which some psychiatrists infrequently used in the treatment of same-sex attraction. It has not been used in decades for same-sex attraction. Today, therapists who provide counselling for those with unwanted same-sex attraction use narrative or talk therapy.

Talk therapy exists for those who want to try to change a specific behaviour. Such talk therapy has been successfully used by people with unwanted same-sex attraction and gender dysphoria. Why not give Canadians this option if they want it?

 

Why Bill C-6 Needs to be Stopped

Bill C-6:

  1. Will empower the government to jail parents for accessing anytype of therapy that does not ultimately lead to their child;
    • becoming transgender or
    • acting on his/her same-sex attraction
  2. Overrides parental rights by stopping any parent from seeking counselling for their child who is questioning his/her gender or sexual orientation;
  3. Prevents children who have switched genders from de-transitioning if they change their mind;
  4. It prevents spiritual leaders (Imams, pastors, religious counsellors etc.) from providing spiritual guidance to those who request it.
  5. Violates the freedom of conscience of medical practitioners, counsellors, and clergy to assist their clients and community members according to their best professional judgment.

We Muslims all know well that changes in the biological creation of God and same-sex relationships are one of the highest forms of Shirk that invite the wrath of God. It is one of the deeds that most displeased God. 

Bill C-6 is also an unprecedented assault on the civil liberties and religious freedom of every Canadian.

Thanks a lot for sharing this information. Situation is not only alarming but horrible. Govt must stop it.

Jazaka Allah Khayr. Please continue your Jihad (struggle),we are with you.

Fuzail Siddiqui

Agreed. This law could be misused to punish good faith parental guidance to their children. It may result in further weakening of the family unit, the very building block of society.

Shafi Shaikh

Please avoid bills that are used as cover for questionable harmful and discriminatory investigative techniques

Rashid
