While most Muslims elected to office are primarily on the Left and of the Islamist tradition, it is refreshing to know that there are those of the Islamic faith tradition who have embraced the classical liberal values of the West. Professor Emeritus Salim Mansur is one such man.
An outspoken critic of Leftist multicultural policies and a life-long defender of individual freedom, Professor Mansur has devoted his life and career to further the values of Western society.
Although born in Calcutta and raised in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) Professor Mansur has adopted a patriotic Canada First political philosophy having immigrated to Canada almost 50 years ago. Regardless of his decades of promoting freedom, he has faced an uphill battle trying to convince those who purport to be on the side of freedom and capitalism that he is the genuine article. Rejected by the Conservative Party of Canada in 2019 he ran for Parliament under the People’s Party of Canada banner becoming a bit of a cause célèbre for his outspoken criticism of the Islamization of Canada, globalism, and the Liberal Party’s policy of open immigration.
Salim was in conversation with Just Right Media’s Robert Vaughan to discuss the backlash he has received from the so-called ‘conservative’ public for his faith, confronting the mistaken prejudice that all Muslims must be Islamists and on the Left.
