A shocking exchange took place at the annual gay pride parade in Toronto, Canada on June 25 that has created a division between some in the Muslim community and the far-left Antifa group.
Joining the LGBTQ marchers in the parade were a group of Middle Easterners who were speaking out against the oppression and persecution that gay people face in Muslim countries.
The Muslim marchers were part of the International Center for Human Rights (ICHR), and reportedly included former Iranian political prisoners. According to the Clarion Project, ICHR “is a group dedicated to opposing human rights abuses by dictatorships in general and the Islamic Republic of Iran in particular.”
Seeking to draw attention to the Islamic abuse of gay people, the ICHR marchers carried signs reading, “Iran Executing Gays since 1979” and “Qatar Whips and Hangs Gays.”
However, surprisingly, they were met with severe opposition from a group of masked Antifa protesters, who accused the moderate Muslims of being “Islamophobic” and encouraging anti-Muslim hate.
One Antifa member told them, “Anti-Muslim racists look at you and they are emboldened, do you understand?”
The ICHR marchers shot back, yelling, “You have never supported gays in Islamic countries” one man accused. A woman shouted “We are from the Middle East! You don’t know what you are talking about!”
The Clarion Project points out that a definite shift is occurring within the Muslim community, as some are emerging to speak out against the oppression they face and are becoming more moderate. Yet, shockingly, as they speak up for gay rights, those on the far left are slamming them down as being anti-Islamic.
