OTTAWA – The renowned Islamic scholar, Maulana Tariq Jameel addressed a group of the Canadian legislators in Ottawa last week.
Maulana highlighted the teachings of Islam, harmony, truthfulness, and other issues, “This is your country, you are a Canadian citizen, be sincere and loyal to your country,” he said during his speech.
Tariq Jameel said that instead of sending money home one should invest it in Canada, he also urged illegal refugees to leave the country.
After the speech which is delivered in Urdu and translated into English, the lawmakers took to microblogging sites and expressed their emotion on twitter.
