The Muslim Canadian Congress (MCC) has called upon the Canadian government to declare the Pakistan-based Jamaat-e-Islami and the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood as terrorist organizations for their support of Al Qaeda and the Taliban.

In a statement issued after the massacre committed by jihadi terrorists in Pakistan in which nearly one hundred Ahmadiya Muslims died on Friday, the MCC said it was deeply troubled by the links between Pakistan’s fanatic jihadi outfits and the affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Jamaat-e-Islami in USA and Canada, home to tens of thousands of Ahmadiya Muslims.
The MCC urges Ottawa to bar the entry in Canada of anyone associated with these groups and to monitor their Canadian affiliates to ensure they do not pose a threat to liberal and progressive Muslims as well as Ahmadiya and Ismaili Muslims in this country. The Jamaat-e-Islami in particular has a network across Canada and is spreading a harsh and hostile attitude among Muslim Canadian youth towards non-Muslims as well as minority Muslim sects.
“The Canadian affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Jamaat-e-Islami are no less hostile towards minority Muslim sects and the West, but have developed the ability to watch what they say as they build their power base through their infiltration of the media, political parties and their takeover of this country’s mosque establishment,” said Ms. Salma Siddiqui, vice president of the MCC.
In the statement, the MCC also urged Islamic organizations in Canada and the USA to declare without any ambiguity that Ahmadiya Muslims are part and parcel of the Islamic fabric and just one more sect among the hundreds that make up the Ummah.
The MCC statement said the time for ritualistic denunciations of terrorism is now over. “It is time for Muslims in Canada to step up to the plate and recognize the fact that by labelling minority Islamic sects as non-Muslim, they have contributed to the crimes being committed by death-cult jihadi terrorists acting in the name of Islam,” said MCC vice president Salma Siddiqui.
The MCC statement said Islamic leaders in Canada have not only declared the Ahmadiya Muslims as heretic, they also refer to the Ismaili Muslims as not real Muslims and mock their practices as unislamic and unworthy of respect.
The MCC statement said, “It is a pity that the only two sects of Islam that have committed themselves to peace and reconciliation are today labelled ‘unislamic’ by the mainstream mosque establishment in North America and their mentors in Saudi Arabia and Iran.”
