Qur’an-burning Pastor Not Allowed to Enter Canada

The arguable pastor from Gainesville, Fla., whose congregation burned the Islam’s religious book, The Qur’an, was been deprived of his right to entry Canada, in advance of his scheduled, for an appearance in Toronto. Terry Jones is planned to attend an event organized in the lawn of Queen’s Park in Toronto on Thursday, based on the topic of the questionable film titled “The Innocence of Muslims.”

The film is allegedly accused for intentionally stirring hate in the Muslim community by screening offensively sensitive and sacred topics of the religion.  The video inevitably led to numerous brutal protests all across Middle East, Asia and Muslims residing in other parts of the world. Jones reached the U.S.-Canada border on early Thursday but was not allowed to pass over into Ontario.

Jones is invited to debate with Toronto’s imam, Steve Rockwell, on the topic of whether the film should have been allowed public audience worldwide or not. Jones ‘ group, Stand Up For America, has volubly encouraged the video so far. The event has been hosted by a group called Canadians United Against Terror. The debate is scheduled to start at 6 p.m.

Jones embarked furious and outrageous international protests in 2010, as he announced his intentions to burn a copy of the Qur’an on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks. He was asked to withdraw the motion as it posed direct threat to the U.S. military troops overseas, however Jones’ congregation went on with the plan and burned the Qur’an later on March 11, causing even more protests.
