The Ontario “Human Rights” Tribunal’s persecution of John Alabi

I recently heard about a case where the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario has levied a fine against a landlord, which must be payed to a Muslim couple, Walid Madkour and Heba Ismail, of the sum of $12,000 CDN.

Evidently the landlord had refused to remove his shoes when showing the bedroom, because the couple used this space as their prayer room.  He had given them 24 hours notice of the visit, but refused to give an additional hours notice, which is not required by law in Ontario.

The leftist government of Ontario is full of deluded people who think that respect of persons is synonymous to respect for their religion.  This is not the case in the real world.  When you show respect to another person’s religion you are giving it credibility.

Mr. Alabi is a professing Christian, and must behave towards others the way the Christian bible dictates, NOT the way the Ontario government dictates behaviour!

So how does the bible tell us to treat other religions?  It certainly tells us to show love to others, but it does not tell us to respect their religion.

Here is one situation where the religion of another is addressed;

27 If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake.
28 But if any man say unto you, This is offered in sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his sake that shewed it, and for conscience sake: for the earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof:
29 Conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the other: for why is my liberty judged of another man’s conscience?
30 For if I by grace be a partaker, why am I evil spoken of for that for which I give thanks?
31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:27-30
While the earth is the Lords, and we are not forbidden to eat anything, eating something that has been sacrificed to idols does not glorify the God of the Bible, but is an insult to Him!  It is forbidden for Christians to eat food that they know has been sacrificed to a false god!  So if you see “Halal” on a package of meat, you should leave it at the grocery store; it has been sacrificed to a false god!Would taking off his shoes glorify the God of the bible, if John Alabi had removed them in a Muslim prayer space?  Absolutely NOT!  It would give the God of the Qur’an credibility, and dishonor John Alibi’s own God, Jesus Christ!

The Ontario Human Rights Tribunal has not upheld any “universal” human rights of this Muslim couple, but rather they have imposed foreign laws on a Canadian citizen, and a Christian.

As the Apostle Peter said;

Acts 5:29
Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
When I heard of this travesty of justice I wrote the following to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, and I recommend you do something similar;

To the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario

“I am writing you about your persecution of John Alabi.

Mr. Alabi is a Christian, and he was showing his own property to a prospective tenant.

To say that Mr. Alabi violated someone else’s rights by not removing his shoes is actually a violation of Mr. Alabi’s rights as a Canadian citizen!  It is a lie, since no religion has the right to make me conform to its ideas, especially on my own property!

There is no law in Canada that says someone must observe any one else’s religion, and even if there was such a law, it would be an unjust law.

Islam is a false religion that worships a devil, and as such forcing respect to such a religion would be a violation of any Christian’s rights!

I recommend to John Alabi that he does NOT pay your fine, since the fine itself is a form of religious persecution, and is in fact a form of the Muslim Jizya, the tax on unbelievers!

These “Human Rights Tribunals” are not really about human rights at all, but about punishing Christians for their faith!
The email address I used is
For more information;

While I disagree that the fine should be paid, the Rebel Media is collecting money to help John Alibi.  As a Christian I believe it is wrong to pay such an unjust fine.  Mr. Alabi did not violate anyone’s rights!  If you wish to help go to

  1. A landlord visiting his tenant’s home is guest in that home. He owns the freehold of the building. But he is contracted to let that building, as a home, for his tenant’s occupation. I am quite sure that if I asked my landlord’s agent to remove his shoes at the front door, he would do so. It’s nothing to do with Sharia. Some people don’t like outdoor shoes on their floors.

    What is wrong here is the sheer magnitude of the penalty, for a trifling offence. He should appeal.

    • dknezacek says:

      I agree, a landlord is a guest when visiting his tennants, and I also agree that this is a triffling offence.

      Given the fact that Mr. Alabi is from Africa and has most likely seen Islamic atrocities first hand, the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal has not done their homework! If Mr. Alabi has known people who were killed by Islamists he might be predisposed to act in a hostile manner when dealing with them. If so then I would say that he has acted in a manner consistent with showing restraint!

      Yes he should appeal, and I believe he has done so.


      • Please God, grant Mr Alabi justice at his appeal.

        I think I have heard of earlier decisions by “human rights tribunals” in Canada.

        I wouldn’t know whether Mr Alabi came from a part of the huge continent of Africa where he might have seen Islamic atrocities.

        I read the report in The Toronto Sun.

        It appears Mr Alabi had lodgers, not tenants. They had their own bedroom, in his house. They shared communal rooms like bathroom and kitchen with their landlord. Such arrangements in the UK are exempt from discrimination laws. If its the same in Canada, Mr Alabi could have refused them the accommodation.

        They wanted him to give the statutory 24 notice of showing round anew tenant. They also wanted a courtesy call 5 minutes beforehand. And shoes off, in the only room in the building of which they had exclusive occupation.

        Any sensible African landlord in Canada letting to Arabs, would have played along with this. However, damages of CA$12,000 is beyond sanity, for this landlord’s incalctricance, even if the tribunal considered it to be “harassment”.
