A "disturbing, Islamphobic tweet" on the city of Brampton's decision to allow mosques to broadcast the call to prayer has prompted the Peel District School Board to remove one of its school council chairs and launch an investigation into comments it says are "never acceptable."
Ravi Hooda doesn't know that it's THE CURRENT YEAR!
"Our noise by-law originally passed in 1984 and only included an exemption for Church bells," Brampton mayor Patrick Brown said in a tweet. "It will now include all faiths within the permitted hours and decibel levels. The Muslim community can proceed with the sunset azan because it's 2020 [and] we treat all faiths equally."
"What's next? Separate lanes for camel & goat riders, allowing slaughter of animals at home in the name of sacrifice, bylaw requiring all women to cover themselves from head to toe in tents to appease the piece fools for votes," replied a user by the name of Ravi Hooda.
Funny, his legitimate questions went unanswered. Anyway, the reaction was swift. He was removed from his local school board and then fired by his real estate company. His sorry grovelling didn't help:
Hooda said he removed his tweet and immediately put out another one apologizing "unconditionally," but that the action hasn't made much difference.
