John Alabi Has To Pay $12,000 'Sharia Fine' For Not Removing Shoes

Jul 13, 2017 by Rik Bokelman

A 53-year-old Christian from Toronto was issued a $12,000 'sharia' fine by the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal for offending Muslims and injury to their feelings and dignity. He did not remove his shoes when he walked into their room.


"I was humiliated, I was made to feel I have no rights, I was made to feel that I’m not wanted in society," says John Alabi, 52, who 22 years ago moved from Nigeria to Canada. "I feel powerless. They rented my place for only two months. Two months! It’s just not fair," he says in the Toronto Sun. "I don’t have the money. I work very hard. If they go into my bank account right now, I don’t have $12,000 there."

John Alabi was showing the place to another prospective tenant because the renting contract the Muslims signed was expired.

At the tribunal, the couple said they prayed in their bedroom and the floor had to remain clean.

Alabi claims the couple never had a problem before when he wore his shoes to make repairs in the apartment. And he wasn’t wearing outside shoes, but shoes he only wore in his own home.

After a WND crowdfunding John is now going to fight back in the ring against Ontario's Human Rights Tribunal. Support him here.
