Brampton East MPP Gurratan Singh, responded to racist remarks made at him at MuslimFest in Mississauga over the weekend. In a video posted on Twitter, which has been viewed more than 250,000 times, Singh, who is also NDP leader Jagmeet Singh's brother, was seen responding to a protestor’s anti-Islamic comments. Since this video has been posted, it has received a massive response from Canadians.\nIn the video, a man is seen approaching Singh before spewing racist comments. Singh tells the man, later identified as National Citizens Alliance founder Stephen Gravey, that he condemns his racism.\nGravey is heard asking if Singh supports Shariah law and "political Islam." “You’re hiding, buddy. I’ll debate you anytime,” Gravey is heard saying while security escorts him off the scene.\nHowever, Singh stays calm throughout the video, stating, "We don't need that kind of racism in Canada."\nSingh tweeted that his brother Jagmeet Singh taught him to “always confront racism,” and that he will always stand by his Muslim brothers and sisters to say “hate is wrong.”\nJagmeet Singh, federal NDP leader in Burnaby South, responded to a woman’s racist comments back in 2017 by saying he supports her rights but will not be intimidated by hate.\n"I gotta admit, I'm proud of my brother for responding with strength, responding clearly that that is wrong."For so many Canadians this a reality, that what happened to my brother yesterday is not a one-off incident,” Jagmeet Singh told CBC news.\nMy brother @theJagmeetSingh taught me to always confront racism.I will never respond to an Islamophobe by stating, "I am not a Muslim".Instead, I will always stand with my Muslim brothers and sisters and say hate is wrong ✊🏾. https://t.co/MaBPc3sBb1— Gurratan Singh (@GurratanSingh) September 2, 2019\nGravey also posted his version of the story online, explaining that he confronted political correctness and pandering to ethnic minorities because someone had to do it.\nJagmeet Singh's Brother Called OutPolitical correctness and pandering to ethnic minorities confronted.... someone had to do it...https://t.co/p6bzE64PBwhttps://t.co/wJ8JWD3huc#NovaScotia #maritime #Truro #Halifax #cdnpoli #canpoli #NDP #MuslimFest2019— Stephen Garvey 🇨🇦 (@sjgarvey) September 2, 2019\nThe response online largely condemn Gravey’s approach and the comments he made as twitter exploded with people saying they are proud of Singh.\nI respect you, man. Honestly. It takes immense patience to do what you did. You could've easily stopped the person by saying 'I'm not muslim'... & I wouldn't hate or disrespect you for that. But the fact that you didn't... has made all the difference! That's insane. Thank you 👊🏼— Z K (@Zuha25) September 2, 2019\nWhat a class act. That man shames himself with his ignorance and hate.— The Waco Kid 🇺🇸 (@soopervillain) September 2, 2019\nSingh has been applauded online for taking a stand against racism even though he is not Muslim and could have said that to end the conversation. Muslims have also responded by thanking him for taking the stand against hate.\nMr Singh, will disagree with you about many political party things. However, I admire the principles of your stance against racism. I will attempt to emulate your leading role— Paul_YYC (@paul_yyc) September 2, 2019\nThank you Mr Singh. You are a wonderful example of how strong people of color can be when we stand up for one another. Muslims are proud to stand with you.— Mona Askari (@Monapsych) September 2, 2019\nBoth of the Singh brothers are actually Sikh, but have stood up against anti-Islamic comments rather than saying they’re not Muslims.\nThere are stories everywhere.
