Islamic group defends itself by saying message is misunderstood
An Islamic group whose presence in Montreal sparked controversy insisted Friday night that its message has been misunderstood.
The Islamic Education and Research Academy (iERA) is a UK-based group that describes itself on its website as an "international dawah organization committed to educating and informing humanity about the truth and noble message of Islam."
However, a speech by the group's chairman Abdurraheem Green, where he suggested it is alright for a husband to use physical force on his wife, drew a lot of negative attention to the group.
