Cleric In B.C. Said Wishing Someone ‘Merry Christmas’ Is Worse Sin Than “Murder”

Sheikh Younus Kathrada says he was taken out of context, but won’t retract or apologize.

Sheikh Younus Kathrada, an Islamic Cleric who operates in B.C., is facing widespread condemnation for his claim that Muslims wishing someone ‘Merry Christmas’ was somehow a worse sin than taking a life.

Here’s part of what he said, as noted in reports based on a YouTube video that was posted by Muslim Youth of Victoria:

“If a person were to commit every major sin, murder, committing adultery, dealing with interest, all of these sins, if a person were to do all of those major sins, they are nothing compared to the sin of congratulating and greeting the non-Muslims on their false festivals. It is not possible that a true believer will allow himself or herself to congratulate people, we have no shame.”

Kathrada says his remarks were taken out of context, but he is still standing behind what he said:

“I stand by what I said and I will not retract unless I am proven to be wrong. What you see is what you get, unedited, uncut.”

His remarks can be viewed below:

Those are clearly absurd and disturbing remarks, and should be condemned by the same politicians who are so quick to jump on other more ‘politically-correct’ controversies.

Yet, we can expect nothing but silence from the virtue-signallers.

Multiculturalism at work!


Perhaps Sheikh Kathrada would like to go back where he came from…and the sooner, the better.

As George Orwell famously stated: “some people are more equal than others” .


What a Ridiculous statement made my Sheikh Younus Kathrada. I know that the liberals are slowly taking our freedom and our Christian value away, but there is still a majority of people who believe in God and Jesus Christ and no other religions should be above the other.

Are you sure this is a politically correct subject ? It sounds like nothing but sour grapes to me !
