PART 7 – Conclusion
In June 2015, the Saudi Gazette published three articles (June 5 – June 19 – June 26) by its Ottawa-based columnist Mohammed Azhar Ali Khan against Point de Bascule. In the June 19 article, Mr. Ali Khan wrote that Point de Bascule’s assertion to the effect that Human Concern International (HCI) had sponsored events featuring radical speakers is false and that Point de Bascule is lying.
Mr. Ali Khan, who occupied various positions on HCI’s Board is categorical: “HCI, a relief agency, does not sponsor conferences. It contributes to such gatherings to be able to display its literature and collect donations for the needy.”
HCI is a registered charity that was established in Calgary before moving to Ottawa. Its file can be accessed on the Canada Revenue Agency’s website (File 107497125RR0001).
In what follows, Point de Bascule refutes Mohammed Azhar Ali Khan by listing four events that were sponsored by Human Concern International in the past. The first two were mentioned in a 2014 article that Point de Bascule dedicated to Mr. Ali Khan himself: New MCCNCR president Mohammed Azhar Ali Khan presents his organization as primary Muslim contact for police and other government agencies in Ottawa.
By clicking on the following links, readers will be able to see HCI’s name on the posters of the events or in the articles about these events. In the webpage dedicated to the first event, ISNA-Canada is stating that “The funds from this [HCI] sponsorship will help in balancing our convention budget.” In the poster made for the 1ndépendance 2013 convention in Montreal, HCI is not referred to as a sponsor but as a “fier partenaire” of the event, a “proud partner” in French, an expression that is even stronger than “sponsor.”
Mohammed Azhar Ali Khan was born in India in 1932 and moved to Pakistan in 1950, three years after the partition of India. After studying in the United States and working as a news editor for a Pakistani newspaper and a correspondent for two American newspapers, he migrated to Ottawa in 1965. Shortly after his arrival, he started working as a journalist for the Ottawa Citizen and became a member of its editorial board in 1967. He resigned his position in 1990 to become director of multiculturalism and senior policy adviser with the Citizens’ Forum on Canada’s Future, usually referred to as the Spicer Commission. After the failure of the Meech Lake accord, Prime Minister Brian Mulroney had asked former Ottawa Citizen editor Keith Spicer to take the pulse of Canadians about the political future of the country. From 1996 to 2006, Mohammed Azhar Ali Khan was an Immigration and Refugee Board adjudicator (“refugee judge”). In the eighties, Ali Khan led the Ottawa Muslim Association. In 2007, he started the Muslim Coordinating Council of the National Capital Region (MCCNCR), an umbrella organization in Ottawa, and he was its president until 2010. On February 13, 2014, Ali Khan was officially chosen as MCCNCR president for a second time.
Point de Bascule: File Mohammed Azhar Ali Khan
The Ottawa Citizen / June 28, 1980
In February 2014, after Saudi Gazette columnist Mohammed Azhar Ali Khan was elected president of the Muslim Coordinating Council (MCCNCR) in Ottawa, he declared / Archive.Today that his Council “now represents most of the Muslim organizations of the [Ottawa] area and can speak to the governments and the media on their behalf.”
In the past, many mainstream Muslim organizations have misled police and other government organizations about the nature of the Islamist threat facing us (about the nature of the concept “jihad,” for example). Since Mr. Ali Khan aspired to be a contact person for government agencies (including police, of course), it was only natural to try figuring out what kind of advice he would be giving. After finding out that he had been on the Board of Human Concern International for several years, we noticed that in 2008 and 2012, during his mandate on HCI’s Board, his organization sponsored two events where radical speakers had been invited.
In his June 19 Saudi Gazette column / Archive.Today, Mr. Ali Khan denied that HCI has ever sponsored events but the proofs are there: the webpages or the posters dedicated to these events by those who organize them are still accessible on the web.
The program of the Islamic Society of North America’s 34th Convention (Look for sessions 7 & 10) announces that Qazi Hussein Ahmad (1938-2013), the leader of the Pakistani Jamaat-e-Islami (JEI) in 2008, was scheduled as one of the main speakers at the event. The JEI is an arch-radical organization that was founded in 1941 by Syed Maududi in British India. Maududi moved to Pakistan after partition. According to the Canada Revenue Agency, an armed wing of the JEI is waging armed jihad in India. JEI has very close links with the Muslim Brotherhood.
Here is how JEI founder Syed Maududi defined the goal of the doctrine guiding the party led by the man who was invited at the 2008 HCI-sponsored event:
Syed Maududi / Jihad in Islam: “Islam wishes to destroy all States and Governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam regardless of the country or the Nation that rules it. […] Islam requires the earth – not just a portion – but the whole planet.”
In a 2000 decision denying the refugee status to a Tunisian Islamist, the Canadian Immigration and Refugee Board highlighted that Maududi (Mawdudi) justified discrimination against non-Muslims on the basis of the nature of the Islamic state and that he “consider[ed] slavery to be legitimate.”
Maududi’s position on slavery is very similar to what the Islamic State is practicing today towards its female prisoners of war among others / Archive.Today. It is not a coincidence. According to the Guardian / Archive.Today, “When [Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi] made his speech in July  at Mosul’s Great Mosque declaring the creation of an Islamic state with himself as its caliph, [he] quoted at length from the Indian/Pakistani thinker Abul A’la Maududi [aka Syed Maududi], the founder of the Jamaat-e-Islami party in 1941 and originator of the contemporary term Islamic state.”
In 2011, Syed Munawwar Hassan, Qazi Hussein Ahmad’s successor as JEI leader, praised Osama bin Laden as “a man of character and a symbol of jihad and resistance against the U.S.” In 2014, Hassan declared that Osama bin Laden is “still alive in people’s hearts.”
In 1996, the Globe and Mail reported that, when HCI representative in Pakistan and al-Qaeda leader Ahmed Said Khadr was arrested in relation with the bombing at the Egyptian embassy in Islamabad that killed 16 people and injured 60, the Jamaat-e-Islami provided him legal counsel.
According to a report that was published by the Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch around the time of ISNA’s 2008 convention, Canadian authorities refused to grant JEI leader Qazi Hussein Ahmad a visa.
In 2013, the ISNA Development Foundation (IDF), a substructure of ISNA, the organizer of the 2008 convention, had its charitable status revoked after the Canada Revenue Agency concluded that IDF provided tax receipts to a second entity (Kashmiri Canadian Council/Kashmiri Relief Fund of Canada) that transferred funds to a third entity (Relief Organization for Kashmiri Muslims), a charitable arm of the Jamaat-e-Islami (JEI). JEI’s armed wing (Hizbul Mujahideen) is engaged in jihad against India. All this information is mentioned in the Summary of reasons for revocation that was issued by the Canada Revenue Agency after IDF’s charitable status was revoked.
The second example of events sponsored by HCI that Point de Bascule presented in the 2014 article dedicated to Mohammed Azhar Ali Khan is the Reviving the Islamic Spirit (RIS) convention in 2012.
Aside from a RIS 2012 webpage presenting Human Concern International as a Pearl sponsor of the event, there is also a mention of HCI’s sponsorship of the convention in a press release / Archive.Today that was issued by the National Council of Canadian Muslims (then called CAIR-CAN) in December 2012. Mr. Ali Khan and the NCCM are close allies. In 2013, he spoke at a press conference / Archive.Today that was organized by CAIR-CAN / NCCM in Ottawa.
The 2012 edition of the RIS convention had a large media coverage. For two reasons: first, Justin Trudeau, then a candidate for the leadership of the Liberal Party, accepted to speak at the event, and second, IRFAN-Canada, an organization whose charitable status had been revoked the year before for having transferred almost $15 million to the terrorist entity Hamas sponsored the event.
IRFAN eventually cancelled its sponsorship of the event after Point de Bascule highlighted its links with the terrorist organization Hamas and mainstream media covered the story.
Three months after the RIS 2012 convention, Hamas threatened to launch terrorist attacks in countries where Israel embassies are located. Canada is among the potential targets, of course. Hamas leaders have frequently advocated the Islamic conquest of the West in the past (2006 – 2008 – 2011 – 2012). In 2011, for example, Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahhar said on TV that Western civilization “will not be able to withstand the great and glorious Islam.”
In 2014, IRFAN-Canada itself was added to Canada’s list of banned terrorist organizations. A research published by the Canada Revenue Agency explains in details the links between IRFAN-Canada and Hamas: IRFAN-Canada – Links to Hamas / Archives PdeB.
An RCMP document made public / Archive.Today by Montreal La Presse in 2014 highlighted that Human Concern International transferred funds to IRFAN between 2005 and 2009. Already in 2004, then Opposition MP Stockwell Day told the House of Commons that IRFAN (and its predecessor the Jerusalem Fund) were linked to Hamas. In 2007, IRFAN was identified as a part of Hamas’ financing infrastructure in North America in an important terrorism trial in the U.S. (subsection VIII)
Point de Bascule (May 25, 2015): While two organizations associated with Hussein Hamdani were contributing to IRFAN-Canada, the minister whom he was advising was being sued by IRFAN for having said that it was funding Hamas
ABDALLAH BIN BAYYAH: He recommended using charitable donations to fund terrorism.
MUSTAFA CERIC: In 2010, the Pakistani Daily Mail reported that “Dr. Mustafa Ceric urged the Muslim Ummah [community] to conquer the world through Halal movement” at the Global Halal Congress in Karachi (also GMBDW).
JAMAL BADAWI: In an interview given in the early 2000s, he advocated that Muslims should become judges in North America and take advantage of their influential positions in order to stop applying current legal provisions that are incompatible with sharia.
In a speech on the future of the Muslim ummah (community), Jamal Badawi told his supporters that his goal and the goal of those working with him is the establishment of an Islamic state ruled by sharia:
Jamal Badawi: “There will be the re-establishment of Rightly-Guided Caliphate following the prophetic path. That’s where we are going.”
Does Mohammed Azhar Ali Khan consider HCI representative Jamal Badawi an “Islamophobe” for agreeing with Point de Bascule on the goal that he and his allies are pursuing?
In 2004, the NCCM Executive Director presented Jamal Badawi to a Canadian Senate Committee as “perhaps one of the best North American Islamic scholars, if not the premier.”
TARIQ RAMADAN: While addressing his supporters in Dallas in July 2011, Ramadan told them that “It should be us, with our understanding of Islam, our principles, colonizing positively the United States of America.”
In a 2004 interview with Egypt Today, Ramadan encouraged Islamists operating in Canada to use the Canadian legal framework, which he described as “one of the most open in the world,” to subtly and gradually introduce rules of sharia in Canada. At the time, Tariq Ramadan strongly urged his supporters in Canada not to openly mention their commitment to sharia: “The term shariah in itself is laden with negative connotations in the Western mind,” Ramadan said. “There is no need to stress that. […] For the time being this is not how we want to be perceived,” he added.
In a speech that he gave in Detroit in 2013 (0:51:10), Tariq Ramadan told his supporters that “Jihad is the way we implement sharia.”
In his June 19 article, Mohammed Azhar Ali Khan stated that “It is idiotic to say that a minority can think of imposing Shariah on a non-Muslim majority even if they wanted to, which they don’t.” Once more Mr. Ali Khan has been proven wrong. The preceding quotes by Ceric, Badawi and Ramadan, all influential mainstream Muslim leaders, are there to prove that the project of progressively implementing sharia in the West is very real and that those saying otherwise are either incompetent or deceiving us.
Already in 1975, Saudi agent Jaafar Idris was advocating the gradual “Islamization” of the North American society (Part 1 – Part 8) in front of North American leaders of the Muslim Students’ Association in Toledo (Ohio).
ABDALLAH IDRIS ALI: He was listed as Secretary General of ISNA Development Foundation in the last financial statement that was produced before the organization’s charitable status was revoked by the Canada Revenue Agency for its involvement in the funding of an organization linked to terrorism.
ZAID SHAKIR: He declared that “If better organized, Muslims could take over the U.S. in a very short period of time.”
HAMZA YUSUF: The organizers of the RIS 2014 convention tweeted the following excerpt of Hamza Yusuf’s speech at last year’s convention: “When you are powerless, non-violence is the best way to approach your enemies.” Youssef Qaradawi, the Muslim Brotherhood spiritual guide, whom Yusuf describes as the “eminent” friend and colleague of his “teacher” Abdullah Bin Bayyah presented the corollary to Yusuf’s proposal in his book Priorities when he stated that one “of the political principles brought to this earth by Islam” is “changing wrong by force whenever possible,” wrong being what is opposed to sharia, of course.
More information is available on Point de Bascule about the speakers and the sponsors of the RIS 2012 convention and about other editions of the conference that is organized on a yearly basis in Toronto at Christmas time.

Point de Bascule (December 16, 2012): IRFAN-Canada withdraws its sponsorship of the Reviving the Islamic Spirit convention
The program of the RIS 2012 convention is available:
In 2013, HCI was identified as a “fier partenaire” (“proud partner” in French) in the organization of a convention featuring four Islamist preachers from France in Montreal. The 1ndépendance 2013 convention was presented as the “largest Muslim event to be organized in French in North America.”
Fabrice de Pierrebourg (La Presse / Montreal): Radical Islamist preachers are expected in Montreal / WebArchive – Archive.Today [Article in French]
In March 2015, HCI sponsored the ILEAD 2015 convention in Gatineau QC, near Ottawa. Ingrid Mattson, Yahya Michot and Faisal Kutty were among the speakers.
INGRID MATTSON: In 2001, shortly after the 9/11 attacks, Ingrid Mattson defended Wahhabism in a CNN chat room, and presented it as a movement “analogous to the European protestant reformation.” The 2007 NYPD report Radicalization in the West (page 17) stresses that Wahhabism is based on an “extreme intolerance and hostility towards unbelievers, including Jews, Christians, Hindus and Shiites,” and that “It provides the primary theological foundation for jihadi-Salafi causes and reduces the barriers to violence.” The NYPD report adds that “Contemporary Saudi (Wahhabi) scholars have provided the religious legitimacy for many of the arguments promoted by the jihadists”. In the audit that led to the revocation of the Saudi World Assembly of Muslim Youth’s charitable status for its funding of Al Qaeda, the Canada Revenue Agency addressed the issue of terrorism funding by Saudi Wahhabi organizations.
In 2000, at an ISNA convention, Ingrid Mattson was asked by a participant to suggest the best tafseer (Koranic commentary) available. According to Young Muslims Canada, she answered that “So far, probably the best work of Tafseer in English is by Maulana Abul A’la Maududi [aka Syed Maududi].” In his book Jihad in Islam, Maududi described the mission of Islam as being the “destr[uction of] all States and Governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam.”
According to the Guardian / Archive.Today, “When [Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi] made his speech in July  at Mosul’s Great Mosque declaring the creation of an Islamic state with himself as its caliph, [he] quoted at length from the Indian/Pakistani thinker Abul A’la Maududi, the founder of the Jamaat-e-Islami party in 1941 and originator of the contemporary term Islamic state.”
YAHYA MICHOT: In 1997, a few weeks after the murder of seven Christian monks in Algeria by the GIA (Armed Islamic Group), Yahya Michot translated, commented and published a fatwa originally written by Muslim scholar Ibn Taymiyya (1263-1328) that justifies the killing of Christian monks.
Ibn Taymiyya considered that Christian monks who do not live secluded and maintain contacts with Muslims living close to their monasteries are “Imams of unbelief” guilty of leading Muslims away from “the true religion,” and who deserved to be killed. Michot published his translation under a pseudonym.
At the time, the French daily Le Monde described the translation of the fatwa and Michot’s comments as “a justification for the assassination of Christian monks, an acquittal pure and simple of the assassins, those of the GIA or those who handle them, based on legal expert Ibn Taymiyya, one of the Islamist literature’s favorite authors.”
After his identity was revealed, Yahya Michot withdrew copies of his booklet still unsold from circulation. He later republished the French translation of Ibn Taymiyya’s fatwa without linking it to the 1996 murders of monks in Algeria the second time.
In 1995, Yahya Michot told the Belgian magazine Le Vif/L’Express that the 1948 Human Rights Declaration cannot be considered universal “since Muslims refused to sign it and came up with their own declaration.” At the time, Michot acknowledged that “the Islamic declaration states that believers and non-believers [non-Muslims] are not equal,” but he added: “This does not mean that the former will kill the latter.”
FAISAL KUTTY: Contrary to today’s Islamists who generally claim that Islam has nothing to do with violence or terrorism (for example: Munir El-Kassem saying in 2013 that “Faith and terrorism are an oxymoron, they do not exist together.”), HCI representative Faisal Kutty provided an entirely different explanation on the origin of the violence when he quoted Muslim leader Hassan Turabi in 1996:
Hassan Turabi: “Whenever religious energy is … suppressed, it builds up and ultimately erupts either in isolated acts of struggle or resistance, which are called terrorist by those in power, or in a revolution. On the other hand,” [Turabi] continues, “when Islam is allowed free expression, it will bring about social change peacefully and gradually.”
PART 6 – The term “Islamist” serves to distinguish Muslims who are engaged in the offensive that aims at “destroying the Western civilization from within” from other Muslims who do not share this objective
In two of his articles that were published by the Saudi Gazette (June 5 – June 19), Mohammed Azhar Ali Khan stated that Point de Bascule uses the term ‘Islamist’ rather that ‘Muslim’ “to make it sound sinister.” He also claimed that Point de Bascule describes all Muslims as ‘Islamists,’
He is wrong on both counts. Already in December 2012, after being condemned by the National Council of Canadian Muslims (then called CAIR-CAN) for the same choice of word, Point de Bascule explained that the term ‘Islamist’ is used to designate Muslims who are engaged in a political struggle to impose their totalitarian doctrine (Tariq Ramadan prefers the expression “all-encompassing doctrine”), to help distinguish these Muslims from other Muslims who do not share their objective.
There have been many formulations of the goal pursued by Islamists. In North America, a definition of that goal was provided in an internal Muslim Brotherhood memorandum that was published in 1991 and discovered by U.S. police during a terrorism investigation. The memorandum describes the goal of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America as follows:
MB memorandum / Point 4 – The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.
Islamists themselves use frequently the word “Islamist.” When they do, it has a positive connotation. Faisal Kutty / Archive.Today (in 1998) and Tariq Ramadan / Archive.Today (in 2012) used the word “Islamist” to describe in a positive manner Mahfoud Nahna, an Algerian Muslim Brotherhood leader. Kutty dedicated an article to Nahna that was entitled Algerian Islamist Sheikh Mahfoud Nahna addresses ISNA conference / WebArchive – Archive.Today.
Ibrahim Abu-Rabi, a Muslim Brotherhood leader who was based in Edmonton before his sudden death in 2011, wrote a book about the Islamic resurgence in the Middle East. On page 263, he called Youssef Qaradawi, the Muslim Brotherhood spiritual guide, an “Islamist.”
Who would object to that? Qaradawi, himself, used the word “Islamist” to describe his ally Hassan Turabi (search Dr. Hassan) in his classic Priorities of the Islamic movement in the coming phase based on a speech that he gave in Algeria in 1990.
Words have meaning and nuances are important. The reasons that led Kutty, Abu-Rabi and Ramadan to use the word “Islamist” are the reasons that lead Point de Bascule to do it. A quest for precision and nuance. By using the word “Islamist,” Kutty, Ramadan and Abu-Rabi all agreed implicitly that not all Muslims support sharia. They needed a word to distinguish Muslim activists who support sharia and work to implement it from the other Muslims. At one point, somebody came up with the word Islamist. It serves the purpose.
Raymond Ibrahim (Middle East Forum – February 13, 2012): Why we need words like ‘Islamist’
In his Oxford Dictionary of Islam (p. 151), John Esposito, a close ally of the Muslim Brotherhood infrastructure in the U.S., presents the following definition of an Islamist:
Islamist – Term used to describe an Islamic or political activist. Coined in preference to the more common term “Islamic fundamentalist.” Islamists (al-Islamiyyun) are committed to implementation of their ideological vision in the state and / or society. Their position is often seen as a critique of the establishment and status quo. Most belong to Islamic organizations or social movements (al-harakat al-Islamiyyah).
The Oxford Dictionary of Islam, p. 153 – ISLAMIST
Mohammed Azhar Ali Khan started his June 19 article by highlighting that he was motivated by accuracy, fairness and truth. We did our part. We demonstrated that Human Concern International sponsored several events featuring Islamist preachers, contrary to what he claimed in his Saudi paper.
Rather than proving us wrong, Mohammed Azhar Ali Khan lined up his expressions of choice: “idiotic,” “Islamophobe,” “distortions,” “hatemonger,” and “lies.”
In his June 26 column, Mohammed Azhar Ali Khan wrote that “All you have to do is be a Canadian Muslim and you’d qualify to be a victim of a smear campaign [by Point de Bascule].”
Nothing could further from the truth. The articles that we produce are about influential leaders and organizations, not about Muslims in general. We produced our March 2014 article after Mohammed Azhar Ali Khan became president of the Muslim Coordinating Council, after he presented his organization as primary Muslim contact for government agencies (including police) in Ottawa.
Western governments are constantly being misled on the nature of the Islamist threat by people who claim to be the spokespersons of the Muslim community. This is why it is so important to know the ideological background of those who are involved in outreach activities with police.
In the UK, the Islamists convinced the government that as long as Islamists do not openly advocate violence, they can be relied upon to stop those who advocate violence. This led to the Radical Middle Way initiative. It was a failure. The threat facing us is not limited to violence. It includes all those who work at implementing their sharia-based totalitarian ideology, whether they practice armed jihad or the “jihad of the tongue” (click on the image).
In Canada, Islamists told police that jihad has basically nothing to do with violence, while there are hundreds of books endorsed by the same Islamists that state the opposite.
In the U.S. and in Canada, Muslim advisors to government agencies have been successful at convincing their counterparts that the ideology of the jihadists should not be analyzed. It would be “Islamophobic,” they claim.
In any war, in order to defeat the enemy, a key rule to follow is to be well aware of the enemy’s objectives and motivations. Forbidding all allusions to Islam and its principles leads to prohibiting the required study and analysis of texts and speeches made by those who threaten us. This in turn, prevents the understanding of their objectives and how they intend to achieve them.
As Stephen Coughlin, a former Pentagon advisor now with the Washington-based Center for Security Policy explained (VIDEO 2:34), even if the enemy has a wrong understanding of Islam, it is still using it to threaten us. In these circumstances, for our own protection, it is crucial to master its doctrine, its understanding of Islam.
In a second phase, it is important to evaluate how widespread is this interpretation of Islam in order to determine the magnitude of the threat.
This is what motivates us when we try to understand the ideological background and the organizational links of those who advise police.
