An Ontario man was just fined $12,000 by Canada’s Human Rights Commission for failing to take off his shoes in a room being used by Muslims for prayer.
Let’s just call this what it is: a sharia fine.
The man, John Alabi, 52, was issued a sharia ticket by his province’s Human Rights Tribunal.
Unbelievable. Why should Alabi, a Christian who came from Canada from Nigeria about 22 years ago, be forced by local governing authorities to kowtow to the religious demands of another faith — or Islam?
The Rebel started a fundraiser to help him pay his fine.
So, The Rebel started a crowdfunding mission at HelpJohn.ca to get John Alabi the money he needed to pay the jizya. But we heard from Rebel supporters who said they wanted to help John — but not in this way.
Our supporters wanted to help John fight, not give in.
And so, we went back to John with your feedback.
As many of you know, John has not had it easy. For two years, John has been racking up legal fees and spent an inordinate amount of time combatting the case filed by Walid Madkour and his wife Heba Ismail.
His difficulties were compounded when he lost his young son during the proceedings.
But now, John says he’s ready to get back in the ring against Ontario’s Human Rights Tribunal, under one condition: We help him pay his legal fees.
The total cost of his legal fees which include the Request for Reconsideration, Divisional Court and Appeals will be $8000+HST ($9040).
So now it’s time we live up to our promise. If you want to be a part of this important fight to appeal a dangerous Sharia precedent from being set in Canada, please contribute at HelpJohn.ca!
