Watch As A Canadian Sikh Politician Handles Racism With Utmost Dignity And Grace

Jagmeet Singh is a politician in Canada and is a part of the NDP.


The way one can handle conflicts speaks volumes about them. Politician Jagmeet Singh has set an example of how one should react to hatred with utmost love and courage. The man has made a statement at a recent event where a persistent heckler was trying to get his attention through her comments about racism and stop the event.

The event ‘JagMeet and Greet’ where he was speaking was held at Professor’s Lake Recreation Centre. The man was interrupted by a persistent woman. The woman was asking him when his Sharia will stop and said that she knows about his Muslim brotherhood.


‘Sharia’ is a system of laws based on Islam. The woman tries her best to get Singh to respond. Jagmeet responded with dignity and the crowd applauded him. This is his response:

We don’t want to be intimidated by hatefulness. We don’t want hatred to ruin a positive event right?
