Musleh Khan was hired by Toronto police to “bridge gaps” with the Muslim community. But the question is hardly ever asked whether those gaps should be bridged. Perhaps some gaps like this are best not bridged at all. Because on the other side of the bridge is a savage and medieval culture. And trying to bridge the gap meansthat we normalize its ugly abuses.
Musleh Khan is the new Muslim chaplain hired by the Toronto Police to bridge gaps between law enforcement and the Muslim community and to provide religious and moral support to Muslim officers. The police union is justifiably concerned about his comments, made in a 2013 webinar entitled “The Heart of the Home: The Rights and Responsibilities of a Wife.”
