The Liberal backbencher’s motion, known as M-103, became a matter of acrimonious debate in Canada, with opponents painting it as a slippery slope towards limiting freedom of speech and even bringing in the Sharia law.

All the NDP (New Democratic Party) and nearly all Liberal MPs supported the motion. Khalid's motion calls on the government to do three things:· Condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination. · Compel the Commons heritage committee to develop a government-wide approach to reducing or eliminating systemic racism and religious discrimination, including Islamophobia.
