An imam in Canada said Wednesday he has received a death threat and another that called for the burning down of a mosque near Toronto.
Axar.az reports that and in the capital of Ottawa a “hateful” note was found inserted into the door of the Islamic Care Centre on Wednesday, the same day a fire broke out at the side of the building.
Imam Ibrahim Hindy said an email threatening his life was accompanied by a picture of men being hanged, the Globe and Mail newspaper reported.
Hindy is a member of a school board’s multi-faith group in Mississauga, a city just outside of Toronto.
Last month, a board meeting was the focus of a violent demonstration against a school allowing Muslim students to pray on Fridays. Pages of the Quran were torn and strewn on the floor by one man during the meeting.
Hindy has spoken out to defend the school board but he said he never expected he would be the target of such hate.
