An Ontario mosque is coming under fire for using young Muslim children to conduct mock beheadings in a school play.

Video footage of the Islamic Jaffari Center in Thornhill, Ontario, shows children as young as 4 years old watching and learning to conduct beheadings in a play that reportedly took place two years ago.

The video was featured on the Canada’s Sun News Network television program, “Byline with Brian Lilley.”

A young boy can be seen sitting on the floor as another boy approaches him from behind with a machete.

At the end of the play, the boy playing the part of the executioner announces, “Here are the heads.”


Lilly said the mosque also made news headlines when it planned to build a “massive, Muslim only condo complex in a very Jewish neighborhood” and again when schools associated with the mosque were teaching from textbooks that included propaganda about “crafty Jews being compared to Nazis in disturbing passages on jihad.”

“The people at this mosque are not integrating into Canadian society,” Lilley said. “They segregate themselves, be it with their clothing or in trying to build a Muslim-only complex. Given what we know about what was already being taught in the school associated with the mosque, more questions need to be asked and answered.”


Toronto Sun columnist and liberal activist Tarek Fatah, author of “The Jew is Not My Enemy: Unveiling the Myths that Fuel Muslim Anti-Semitism,” explained that the play depicts the martyrdom of Muhammad’s grandson and brother.

“It’s a Shiite school, and it’s commemorating one of the great tragedies in Islamic history, which is the slaughter of the Prophet Muhammad’s family by the caliphate of the time,” said Fatah, who added that he watched these plays when he was a boy growing up in Pakistan.

“The children really go out to participate,” he explained. “Looking at it from a Canadian context, I was deeply disturbed because it means that the indoctrination of 3, 4-year-olds that has been going on for centuries – and which even I as a child in Pakistan thought it to be perfectly normal – how much damage it would do in desensitizing me or my friends or buddies who are now in their 60s as to what is ‘martyrdom’ and why would anyone wish death was a good thing.”

Fatah, who is also founder of the Muslim Canadian Congress, said the play depicts “an immense tragedy that turned the events of Islamic history.”

“Mind you, this happened in the same area that ISIS is conducting the Islamic beheadings, the tragedy which these kids are talking about,” he said. “The grandson of the Prophet Muhammad was slaughtered. His brother was killed and beheaded. The heads of Muhammad’s family were paraded in the city of Damascus and Karbala. So it has a deep emotional value.”

Fatah said he doesn’t believe the parents and teachers at the Islamic Jaffari Center were “trying to make the kids into radicals.”

“After all, these are the victims of radicals,” he said. “Most Shiite Muslims today are being
