Complainer Gets A Taste Of His Own Medicine

One of Ezra Levant's accusers is now facing a discrimination complaint himself. The same human rights commission that is currently reviewing a complaint filed by the Calgary imam against Ezra Levant, will soon be reviewing a complaint filed against the imam himself - for the way he treated women.
Syed Soharwardy, the Calgary imam and national president of the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada, is named in a complaint filed by three women from the Al-Madihan Calgary Islamic Centre. The women lodged the complaint against Soharwardy just after Christmas, alleging various types of mistreatment at the centre. They say in their complaint that they were "discriminated (against) as women and were treated poorly, differently, negatively and adversely by the Directors and Officers of Al-Madinah Calgary Islamic Centre, Islam Supreme Council of Canada (ISCC), Muslim Against Terrorism (MAT), Al-Madinah Dar-Ul-Aloom Ltd and Al-Madinah Calgary Islamic Assembly."
Let's see how he likes being on the other end. This time the matter is much more serious than just publishing a few cartoons that might have hurt someone's feelings. And of course, after the imam tried to use the Alberta HRC against Ezra Levant, he won't be able to say that he doesn't believe the Commission has any authority to make him apologize.
