Sit Down!!!

Alhamdulillaah ala kulli haal.

An Ontario Supreme Court Judge ruled today that part of Canada’s existing Anti-Terror law was in violation of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, effectively pushing away a murky smokescreen which has been used only against Muslims so far. Many folks in the legal establishment and within Muslim communities had serious concerns that the vague language of the Anti-Terrorism Act could easily be manipulated to target Muslims, who view Islam as a complete way of life, rather than merely a religion composed of beliefs and rituals. It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out in court … crown prosecutors may have to deal with existing criminal law and go forward based on evidence of criminal intent and activity alone, instead of embarassing themselves by attempting ridiculous little verbal and mental gymnastics, trying to prove that thin ice is thick enough to jump on.
