Published

on

A Sikh politician is being commended for the grace he showed in handling a racist heckler at a town hall meeting.

Jagmeet Singh was campaigning for party leader of Canada’s NDP Party when an Ontario event was interrupt by a very animated woman screaming about Sharia, the Vancouver Daily Hive reported.

“Across social networks, Singh is being praised for how he handled the heckler, who had mistaken his Sikh turban for Islam — hence calling out Sharia Law, which is an Islamic law,” the Daily Hive explained.

Despite the angry woman, Singh remained calm and smiling, leading the crowd in chanting his campaign slogan, “love and courage.”

“We don’t want to be intimidated by hate, we don’t want hatred to ruin a positive event,” Singh explained. “We welcome you. We love you. We support you, and we love you.”

In a separate campaign interview, Singh explained his experiences with Islamophobia.

“As a Sikh I know the right answer isn’t to say, ‘I’m not a Muslim’ but it’s to say that ‘hate is wrong,’” Singh explained.
