Is the CRA targeting Muslim-led charities in Canada?
Alex Neve and Leilani Farha recently published an op-ed in the Globe and Mail, "If the CRA is targeting Muslim-led charities, Canadians deserve to know," about the Canada Revenue Agency's suspected targeting of Muslim-led charities, noting a pattern that started under Harper and has continued under Trudeau.
They write:"In recent years, members of Mr. Trudeau’s government have received complaints that the CRA’s counterterrorism financing unit, the Review and Analysis Division (RAD), has been disproportionately targeting Muslim-led charities."
"The CRA denies specifically targeting Muslim charities. But the fact remains that 85 per cent of RAD-revoked charities are Muslim-led."The CRA has "cited national security concerns" to avoid releasing data on this issue.
As Neve and Farha point out: "This catch-all excuse has often been used to mask governments’ biases against Muslims, including here in Canada, until the claims’ fragile and dubious nature is challenged and exposed."
