Canadian Muslims are planning a “Million Person March” in Ottawa to protest against the push for LGBT ideology in schools. The protest, organized by Muslim activist Kamel El-Cheikh, aims to bring together Canadians of all faiths to stand against the indoctrination of children with LGBT ideology. El-Cheikh argues that schools are directly targeting Muslim children with this ideology, citing a pamphlet that claims Islam and homosexuality are not in conflict. He considers such a statement to be blasphemy.
El-Cheikh’s efforts come after leading protests against gender ideology and sex education in Ottawa’s schools, which include both Muslim and Christian groups. The activist’s aim is to protect the innocence of children and uphold the values of families.
The pushback against LGBT indoctrination in schools has gained momentum in recent months. Campaign Life Coalition organized a nationwide initiative where thousands of students stayed home to protest the promotion of “Pride Month” in the public education system. A leaked audio recording of a teacher chastising Muslim students for missing school to protest “pride” also caused backlash.
In response to these protests, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau dismissed them, claiming they were fueled by the American right-wing and that online material was being weaponized. El-Cheikh criticized Trudeau’s statements, equating LGBT ideology to a sin against the Muslim faith.
