Muslim Canadian Congress asks CMHC to drop Islamic banking study
by The Canadian Press
TORONTO - The Muslim Canadian Congress wants the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. to stop a study considering the introduction of so-called "Islamic banking" to Canada.
The organization, which says it represents Muslim moderates across Canada, has sent a letter to the CMHC asking it to abandon the study.
It calls the study an attempt to scare Muslims into believing they should pay more to the banks and demand less in return as an act of religiosity.
