An Indian-origin man in Canada has been doxxed and terminated for his views on allowing Azaan.
Bengaluru: From the Arab countries, the scourge now moves to Canada!
Sadly, another Indian origin man has been terminated, all because he expressed his views on a particular manner.
The issue relates to permitting of Azaan using loudspeakers during Iftaar.
As reported widely, Brampton decided to allow Muslims in its region to use loudspeakers for the sunset.
But the Indian-origin man, identified as Ravi Hooda, expressed his views on the issue.
He was immediately doxxed for his views.
.@REMAXca agent and Registered Certified Immigration Consultant Ravi Hooda is upset that Brampton is giving mosques the same noise by-law exemptions as churches. In Mississauga, a nightly call to prayer during Ramadan has become a focal point for anti-Muslim hatred. 1/ pic.twitter.com/exzFIzSC6B— Canadian Anti-Hate Network (@antihateca) May 2, 2020
Ravi Hooda had said, “What’s next? Separate lanes for camel & goat riders, allowing slaughter of animals at home in the name of sacrifice, bylaw requiring all women to cover themselves from head to toe in tents to appease the piece fools for votes.”
Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown too said that Islamophobia will not be tolerated in Canada. He wrote, “Our noise by law originally passed in 1984 only included an exemption for Church bells. It will now include all faiths within the permitted hours & decibel levels. The Muslim community can proceed with the sunset azan because it’s 2020 & we treat all faiths equally. #Ramadan.”
It is interesting to note that ReMax Canada, which is one of Canada’s top real estate marketing websites (in which he worked), put out a notice saying it does not support Hooda’s views.
It said, “We do not share nor support the views of Mr. Hooda. We can confirm he has been terminated and is no longer affiliated with RE/MAX. Multiculturalism & diversity are some of the best qualities in our communities, and we are committed to upholding these values in all that we do.”
On his part, Hooda has given a clarification. He said that his comments were “not directed towards any community or entity but just my attempt to state that we should not be going back to the times where such means of communication was necessary”.
“Unfortunately my tweet was misinterpreted,” he added.
He also added that he was not given an opportunity to present his side of the story. Reports further add that he would be taking legal action.
