Canadian Muslims Urged to Distort Census to Inflate Islam Numbers…
Thursday, May 19, 2016
Who would have guessed Canada’s 2016 census would provide us with an insight into the darker side of Canada’s multiculturalism?
In an attempt to enhance the presence of one linguistic group over another, some Canadian Muslims of Pakistani origin encouraged their community to give inaccurate information on the census form.
They asked Pakistani-Canadians to disown their own mother tongue, which is “Punjabi”, and instead list “Urdu”, so as to enhance Islamic numbers in Canada.
In addition, they apparently didn't want the Sikh community, who also speak Punjabi, to benefit from having more Punjabi speakers in Canada.
This ill-conceived advice to distort the census results could put anyone who followed it at risk.
I would have told them to tell the truth, as should all Canadians.
As Statistics Canada itself warns:
“Every person who … knowingly gives false or misleading information … is, for every refusal or neglect, or false answer or deception, guilty of an offence and liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding five hundred dollars or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding three months or to both.”
The reason why most Canadians have no idea this happened is that the controversy occurred entirely within the confines of one religious and racial minority community, where few outsiders have access.
This is another curse of multiculturalism that encourages insular communities and linguistic ghettos.
The first indication an effort was afoot to distort the census came to me from a social media posting where the writer urged Pakistani and Indian Muslims, regardless of the regional language they spoke, to list Urdu as their mother tongue, so the government would count the total number of Pakistani and Indian Muslims living in Canada.
It also urged Pakistani-Canadians who are Christian to list their language as Urdu in support of other Pakistanis. Read it all here.........................
