Analyzing Islamophobia in Canada

  • PDF

Press TV on IHRC's publication: “Only Canadian: The Experience of Hate Moderated Differential Citizenship for Muslims”

The book "Only Canadian: The Experience of Hate Moderated Differential Citizenship for Muslims" provides an assessment and analysis of the hatred and hostility toward Canadian Muslims.

The book uses case studies to deconstruct the Islamophobia and discursive racism present in Canada. Significant figures in the media are profiled and important laws are scrutinized until the bones of injustice are laid bare for the reader to see.

Canada's ingrained prejudices appear to be foundational as evidenced most blatantly by the mistreatment of the First Nations. With this modus operandi of sorts, Canada is stuck in a repetitive cycle that is destined to continue without significant change.
