Iran Named as Sponsor of Sharia Law Movement in Canada
 
 
Toronto, Canada, June 26, 2004  -  Ms. Homa Arjomand who escaped Iran in 1989 on horseback through the mountains, claims that Iran is sponsoring the spread of Sharia in Canada and around the world.
 
Homa's campaign against Sharia law is primarily to protect the rights of women and children in Canada. The group is challenging the 1991, Ontario Arbitration Act that encourages legal pluralism. The arbitration act permits Catholic, Jewish, Muslim and Native communities to use their religious laws to mediate family and community disputes.
 
 
Child Brides in Toronto High Schools
Homa has counseled many young Canadian Muslim women under the age of 16, whose families have married them off to much older Muslim men at the local Mosque. This is an illegal practice in Canada.
 
A Toronto public high school teacher spoke about the situation at her school where they have a large number of Muslim students. She said three of her female students have been married off at a young age. One of the students age 15, recently asked for her help. When the teacher emailed the other teachers in her school about the problem she was facing, she was "flooded with responses with similar problems in the other classrooms." She was very concerned and asked Homa to come speak at her school and offered to assist Homa with her campaign.
 
Campaign to End Sharia Law - Needs Funds
The movement is gaining international momentum through its contact with similar groups in the USA and Europe. The campaign is currently financed by the leaders. They are requesting support from the concerned public to help pay for their legal and communication costs as they take on the battle with the Ontario Government.
