General Info:
Younus Kathrada is a South-African born Canadian Imam who is preaching hate instead of harmony. In his speeches he is calling on fellow Canadians to support the Taliban and its efforts to impose Islamic sharia law

He has spent over twenty years intensely involved in the Muslim community of Mainland British Columbia, Canada.

In a recent sermon, Kathrada attacked Jews and Christians as “our enemies,” accusing them of funding a failed war against Islam while calling on fellow Canadians to support the Taliban and its efforts to impose Islamic sharia law (which includes death by stoning for adultery and homosexuality) in Afghanistan.

In his speech, which was delivered at the Muslim Youth of Victoria Islamic Center, the Islamic scholar accused Jews and Christians of attempting to spend “mountains of gold in order to take us away from Islam,” though such attempts will ultimately fail.

“So they will spend it but don’t fear, at the end of the day they are not going to win,” he said. “Allah tells us that they will spend it, and that it will be for them a source of regret.”

Kathrada then claims that the recent U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan was a sign of the supposed prophesied failure of such attempts.

“Twenty years in Afghanistan, I don’t need to say any more,” he said.

“‘A source of regret, then they will be overcome.’ Does this sound familiar to you? Have you been listening to the news?” he asked before calling on his audience to praise Allah and demonstrate support for the recent Taliban victory.

“I incite (sic) you to show support for your brothers in Afghanistan, who want to establish the sharia in their land,” he said.

“Allah, grant victory to the mujahideen [fighting] for your sake everywhere,” he added. “Allah grant success to our brothers in Afghanistan so that they establish your shari’a on this land.”

He also accused Jews and Christians of hiding their true nature and attacking that which is most sacred to Muslims.

“They will attack what is most sacred to us but all of that [which] they do is only a small portion of what is really in their hearts, of the hatred that they have towards us in their hearts,” he said.

“Do not think that the Jews and Christians are our friends – they are our enemies,” he asserted.

The Canadian imam then attacked “the West” for its stance on women’s rights.

“We see that the West wants to talk about the rights of women … Ah, yes, her right to be a prostitute,” he said. “Her right to sleep around with whomever she wishes.”

“I want you to understand what those rights are, by the way. Her rights to be abused. Her right to show her body off to men, who get off on watching her in porn and other than that,” he added.

This is not Kathrada’s first time expressing radical and hateful rhetoric.

In October, he vilified French schoolteacher Samuel Paty who was murdered by a Muslim youth for showing Charlie Hebdo cartoons depicting the Islamic prophet Mohammed to his class.

After referring to Paty as “cursed,” “evil-spirited,” and a “filthy excuse for a human-being,” Kathrada implored Allah to annihilate those who slander Mohammed.

On September 11 of last year, Kathrada stated that disrespect of Mohammed is worse than police killings of black citizens in the U.S.

In 2018, Kathrada said Muslims should be offended by those who worship Jesus and that wishing non-Muslims a “Merry Christmas” is a far graver sin than murder, adultery, lying, and any other major sins.
