The Government of Iran continues to move money into Canada through their Khomeinist proxies in search of greater influence. This influence is felt through a list of three charities run by the Shia Ithna Asheri Jamaat, otherwise known as the Thornhill Mosque. This is just one of their proxies. Some of the money is laundered through charity fraud, using CRA tax receipts. The Imam and Alim (religious scholar) of the mosque, Sayyid Rizvi, advocates in his publications that sex with nine year old girls is permissible in the context of a temporary marriage.
***Moulana Sayyid Muhhamad Rizvi (Imam Rizvi) of the Jaffari Mosque believes that the Khomeinist interpretation of Shia Islam is to take precedence over all matters including those which are personal, social, economic and political. In other words, he is an Islamacist supremacist who believes that Islam should dominate everything and everyone.
***Imam Rizvi believes and advocates that sex with nine year old girls is acceptable, as long as it occurs within munqati’ (temporary) or da’im (permanent) marriage. Permanent marriage is preferred, but sex with girls as young as nine within the concept of a temporary marriage is permissible. This would appear to be sanctioning pedophilia and statutory rape, despite Canadian laws against under age marriages and forcing underage females to have sex.
***Imam Rizvi also approves of consanguineous marriages between first cousins.
***While forbidden to do so within Canadian charity laws, Imam Rizvi uses his position to make political speeches which condemn the government of Canada and all three mainstream political parties (Liberal, NDP and Conservative). Iman Rizvi says all three parties are “on the same page” and that Canada is a province of Israel.
***The mosque president appears to believe that the Jaffari Mosque compound should become a NO GO area for non-Muslims. When a CITY TV Interviewer was asking questions about the Jaffari Mosque Expansion Project on February 03, 2014, the question as raised: “Your housing will only be eligible for people from the Muslim community?” The President of the Jaffari Mosque Mr. Shabbir Jeraj replied: “Of course, we are building it. We are paying for it.”
*** During a Hate Crimes investigation into one of the schools run by the Thornhill Mosque, it was reported that the York Regional Police found the following statement in the curriculum: “Islam has allowed boys to engage in sports for one specific reason and that is to always keep them healthy and strong. But why should a Muslim be healthy and strong? Firstly, it is necessary to take care of the body because it is a gift from Allah. Secondly, so that you may physically be ready for jihad whenever the time comes for it.” (Level 7 Curriculum)
The same investigation also revealed that: “Girls should stick to ‘hobbies’ that prepare them to become wives and mothers.” (National Post and Level 7 Curriculum)
OVERVIEW OF RECENT EVENTS
The ambitious expansion proposed by the Jaffari Mosque is raising questions about the intent, funding and the political/religious ideology behind this project. The Shia Ithna Asheri Jamaat of Toronto (the Jaffari Mosque) has its primary location at 9000 Bathurst Street in the City of Vaughan. It has had a presence there since the early 1970s. The associated website is: www.jaffari.org and the contact information listed at that public website is: 9000 Bathurst Street, Thornhill, Ontario L4J 8A7, Tel: 905-695-9786 | Fax: 905-695-1585
The Imam and resident Alim of the mosque, Muhammad Rizvi, is a follower and outright supporter of the late Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran. When Khomeini overthrew the government of Iran in 1979, he began to enforce his intolerant and exclusionary political concept of Velayat-e-Faqih. This translates roughly into the Guardianship of the Juristswhich creates a theocratic dictatorship controlled at the top by individuals chosen for their hard-core interpretation of a Shia inspired Sharia Law.
The Jaffari Mosque used to run three schools in Toronto. Its East End Madrassa was closed after a 2012 hate propaganda investigation was carried out by the York Region Police. No charges were laid, although the police noted that the complainant “has raised a legitimate concern and has prompted change.” The school was removed from its rented premises by the Toronto District School Board. The two individuals responsible for the hate propaganda material – the principal, Ms. Masuma Jessa, and the mosque’s Imam, Muhammad Rizvi – attempted to distance themselves from it, but the investigation made it clear they were aware of the Iranian-produced material being used.
Further concerns have been raised about the overall financing for the project. The costs of the current proposed expansion will run past $150 million. The Jaffari Community centre that was opened in 2009 was believed to have cost approximately $30 million. It is not clear where any of this money has come from, including the 9.6 million dollar debt that was suddenly paid off after the centre opened. Neither the Jaffari Mosque nor the developers have explained the financing or the costs. A previous project at the site was left in a state of partial completion for 10 years when there was a financing failure. This does not seem to be a concern now.
Mr. Shafiq Punjani is the Chairman of the Capital Projects Development Board, a sub-group of the Executive Committee of the mosque. Mr. Punjani is also head of the MP Charitable Foundation, which is involved in the project as well as being the head of the Punjani Family Group and the Bridlepath Properties Group. How the charity moves money around is not publicly clear in relation to this project, nor is the relationship to the UK charitable trust of the same name.
As noted in the Toronto Star, hundreds of residents appeared at Vaughan City Hall to speak out on the Jaffari mosque expansion project in early 2014.
Up until the last few years, the neighbourhood’s mosque, Jewish temple and seminary, Roman Catholic churches, and other religious and cultural organizations enjoyed a peaceful co-existence. Currently, considerable conflict is emerging.
