OTTAWA - An MP who stood in a sea of Tamil Tiger flags and listened as protesters chanted “Tamil Tiger, freedom fighter” is striking back at columnist Ezra Levant.Here is the video that Brian Lilley posted with his column with Malhi standing at Parliament Hill at a Tamil Tiger rally speaking in support of their cause.
Liberal MP Gurbax Singh Malhi says a column that ran in QMI Agency newspapers earlier this week by Levant “misrepresents the facts in suggesting that I support the Tamil Tigers, when my allegiance is to the protection of human rights of individuals around the world.”
In a letter to the editor, Malhi stated that he has spoken out against violations of human rights wherever they have occurred around the world.
“Also note that the event at which I was present and that is mentioned in the column was actually a Tamil-Canadian community rally,” Malhi wrote.
Levant, in a column under the headline, End refugee free-for-all, had questioned why Tamils fleeing Sri Lanka were being treated as refugees when the United Nations does not.
“Let’s ask Gurbax Singh Malhi, a Liberal MP who spoke at a Tamil Tiger rally on Parliament Hill last March, surrounded by the terrorist group’s flags and portraits of Prabhakaran,” wrote Levant.
Tamil-Canadian community rally? Right! Was it really? Take note of the Tamil Tiger flags in the video. Did he not notice the terrorist flags when speaking at that event? Don't tell me he didn't.
Me thinks either Mr. Malhi is not exactly tell the truth, he's using revisionist history or he didn't do his homework before he attended that rally. Gurbax, should maybe go back and take a look at that video.
It might trigger his memory. That facts in that video speak for them selves It clearly shows him lending his support to the group. In any case he's wrong in his response to Era's column.
Ezra Levant-1, Lib MP Gurbax Malhi-0! Thanks to Brian Lilley and Sun Media for bring this to light!
