Viral Video : Jagmeet Singh’s calm response to racist

By 11th September 2017 0 Comments

A Canadian Sikh politician Jagmeet Singh’s calm response to an anti-Islam, anti-Muslim tirade by a woman at a campaign event in Brampton, Ontario has taken social media by storm and received much approbation.

The woman, who identified herself as Jennifer in the video, thrust herself in front of Singh before he was about to speak and said, “We know you’re in bed with Sharia. We know you’re in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Sharia is a canonical set of laws in Islam and unrelated to Sikhism, the religion which Singh comes from.
Despite efforts by the organisers and supporters to take her aside, Jennifer refused to be removed and threatened to call the police.

Instead of responding aggressively to her boisterous attack, Singh calmly responded to the crowd: “We believe in love and courage… We don’t want to be intimidated by hate, we don’t want hatred to ruin a positive event… So let’s show people how to treat someone with love: We welcome you. We love you. We support you.”
