A video from one of Jagmeet Singh’s campaign events in Brampton, Ontario went viral after a woman let out a racist rant at the Sikh politician. The woman went on to blame Jagmeet of conspiring with the Muslim Brotherhood and asking him time and again when Shaira ends. Sharia refers to a set of rules and laws set by Islam. While the protester kept an aggressive stance, shouting at Jagmeet Singh as well as one of the members of the audience, Jagmeet Singh kept his calm and did not retaliate with anger.

In the video, we see a white woman, at Jagmeet’s ‘JagMeet and Greet’ event, in an aggressive stance and invading Jagmeet’s personal space, getting as close as she can, and not allowing him to start the event. All the time the protester was ranting on and on accusing Jagmeet and threatening to call the police in case anyone tried to shut her, Jagmeet Singh simply smiled and told her that everyone in the audience welcomed her, loved her and supported her.

The audience, along with Jagmeet Singh, shouted Jagmeet’s campaign slogan ‘Love and Courage’ over and over again, until the call for love and courage finally drowned out the protester’s voice, leaving her with no choice but to leave the event angrily.

After she left, Jagmeet explained why he did not react angrily or even defend himself. He said that he, being a brown-skinned, turbaned and bearded guy, had faced this sort of criticism all his life in Canada and he was used to people associating him with various extremist groups. He is the first turbaned person to be a member of the legislative assembly of Canada. He is also the first turbaned person to hold a deputy leader position in Canada, serving as the deputy leader of the Ontario New Democratic Party from 2015 to 2017 and before entering politics, he was a criminal defense lawyer, helping the community with pro bono services.
