Pro-sharia group in Canada is 'political party'
by Anthony Furey
A group that hosted a pro-sharia, pro-caliphate talk at an Ontario college describes itself as a "political party."
A press release distributed Friday says "Hizb ut-Tahrir is a political party that works with the global Muslim community to resume the Islamic way of life by re-establishing the Khilafah (caliphate) in the Muslim lands, and this work is achieved through intellectual and political means alone."
On Wednesday, Sun Media broke the news that Hizb ut-Tahrir was banned from hosting events at Mohawk College in Hamilton. In November, the group hosted a speech headlined "The Truth Behind the Syrian Refugee Crisis" on college property that included sharia and caliphate promotion.
