Residents who voted against recognizing the Ahuntsic Cultural Centre as an official Muslim place of worship reject any suggestion ‘Islamophobia’ played a role in their decision. That’s because it isn’t about ‘Islamophobia,’ it’s about justified loathing and fear of Muslims and their supremacist ideology posing as a religion.
Opponents also said they were worried about the neighbourhood turning into a “sultanate” with two classes of citizens, and of the possibility of Islamic extremists.
