On Tuesday, a group of Islamists attacked NRI Ravi Hooda for expressing his opinion over Canadian authorities allowing Mosques to play the exceedingly loud and offensive Muslim Call to Prayer over loudspeakers every day during the month of Ramadan.
OPIndia Last week, several Toronto-area municipalities had reportedly granted permission to local Mosques to broadcast the azan over speakers at sunset every day during Ramzan, the Muslim holy month.
Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown took to Twitter to state that the new laws will allow the Mosques to broadcast the Islamic Call to Prayer (azan) and claimed that they treated all the faiths equally.
Responding to Mayor’s tweet, Ravi Hooda questioned the decision of allowing Mosques to play the Islamic call for prayer on loudspeakers, which is considered to be a nuisance in most societies. Hooda asked whether they would allow separate lines for camel and goat riders and also allow to slaughter animals at home in the name of sacrifice. It is notable here that blaring Azan from loudspeakers is prohibited even in Saudi Arabia, the centre of the Islamic faith.
As Ravi Hooda expressed his opinion on the need of municipalities granting local mosques permission to broadcast the Azan over speakers, the Islamists and self-proclaimed hate trackers descended on his timeline to attack the Indian-origin Hooda and also bullied the authorities to take strict action against him for the alleged “Islamophobic” tweets he had made.
The user’s Twitter account has since been made private since constant attack on him by Islamists.
The Islamic extremists even doxxed Ravi Hooda’s employment details and bullied the employers to sack him from the job.
Result of Muslim outrage: Following the outrage by the Islamists, ReMax Canada, which is one of Canada’s top real estate marketing websites, too informed that it had terminated Hooda’s contract.
The Peel District School Board in Brampton, where Hooda was the “School Council Chair’, also announced that it had removed Hooda from his position and said an investigation was underway against him.
Hooda was also an executive school council member for the Macville Public School in the city of Bolton.
In a letter posted online, Macville school principal Robin Perri wrote, “Today, we were made aware of a disturbing, Islamophobic tweet that was written and shared by a member of our parent community. We immediately conducted an investigation into the matter.” Perri said the content contravened its Safe and Accepting Schools Policy.
“Please know that this individual’s views in no way reflect the values of the Macville Public School community, nor those of the Peel board. Comments like these are upsetting and hurtful, and never acceptable.”
