The video was first uploaded onto YouTube on June 22, and a clip of Banerjee’s comments has since been widely shared across various social media platforms.
Ron Banerjee is well known for his racist, incendiary, and anti-Muslim comments. In the video, he railed against Trudeau and said he wished Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, known for his right-wing, anti-Muslim policies, could lead Canada.
In the past, Banerjee has protested against the religious accommodation of Muslims in schools, and often conducts rallies and events along with other anti-Muslim and anti-Sikh groups throughout Canada.
Banerjee has referred to Muslims as a ‘menace’ and expressed his support for anti-Muslim Dutch politician Geert Wilders. In 2010, he claimed that Islamic civilization “has invented and has contributed less to human advancement than a pack of donkeys.”
