CBC’s Joan Leishman has become the point-person for exposing the intimidation and violence being perpetrated against Muslim “moderates” right here on the streets of Canada. Her National documentary last month was prominently covered (and commented on) here on this blog.
Last night, Leishman prepared a report on Jawad Faizi, the Pakistani refugee journalist who was threatened and beaten earlier this week for writing critical columns about a charismatic Islamist preacher. Click here for the report in RealPlayer format (2:51) .
The only thing missing from pretty much all reports on this incident? No one is repeating exactly what Faizi said about Muhammad Tahir Ul Qadri, who preaches around the world, including in Mississauga, Ontario, where Faizi resides. If anyone out there understands Urdu and has read Faizi’s columns, let me know! I’ll post a rough translation if you can provide.
