Ashura (Arabic: عاشوراء ʻĀshūrā’, colloquially: /ʕa(ː)ˈʃuːra/; Urdu: عاشورا; Persian:عاشورا /ʕɒːʃuːˈɾɒ/; Azerbaijani: Aşure Günü or English: Day of Remembrance) is on the tenth day of Muharram in the Islamic calendar and marks the climax of the Remembrance of Muharram.
Shiite commemorations of the Day of Ashura have traditionally included rituals which have been condemned by many religious authorities recently under the claim that such practices are wrong or un-Islamic.
It’s been reported that Ottawa had a large Iranian Ashoura demonstration organized by Iranians and Toronto’s was exceptional. No one has seen such a parade in the last 35 years in Canada.
Are these demonstrators the newly arrived trend of investor immigrants and international students from Iran? Why don’t these Iranians go to their own religious based mosques and Islamic associations to celebrate? Why would they put on such a show for the public, taking photos and recording videos with their mobile phones?
If these Iranians are truly practicing Muslims they would not hold such a demonstration in public in a non Islamic country.
Since the closure of the Iranian embassy in Ottawa and throwing out the terrorist Iran regime’s agents from Canada, we had not seen such a big event by Shiite Muslim Iranians during their religious month Ashoura (Remembrance) in Canada.
Has the Liberal Party’s victory given them the opportunity? Rouhani, Zarif and Larijani’s latest statements about Canada’s elections result shows that the Liberal government of Canada and Iran are in good terms.
Canada voted in the Liberal Party. The Liberal Party has promised to revoke Bills C51 and C24, which will also pave the path for future terrorist attacks and Islamification of Canada.
