30 MORE | TORONTO STAR – “Walking Toronto through its Muslim history” – By Sarah-Joyce Battersby

The muggers who attacked a woman outside her son’s school, yelling “Go back to your country,” need a geography lesson, according to HiMY SYeD.

More than one million Muslims call Canada home, eight per cent of Torontonians practice Islam, and if by country they meant neighbourhood, that would be the Junction.

“We have fifth-generation Torontonians who happen to be Muslim descent, Muslim heritage. They’ve been here 50, 60, 70 years,” he said of the west-end neighbourhood’s Islamic roots.
