Canadian PM Justin Trudeau reacts over question of conversion to Islam
ISLAMABAD - Hassan Minhaj, the popular American comedian, political commentator, actor, and television host recently interviewed the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who spoke about his beliefs with regard to equal rights for all religious minorities.

In response to the question, Trudeau discorded with the secularism being imposed on people. He claimed that all of us live in a free society where every individual has the right to his faith. He went further and said, “In a free society you cannot legitimize discrimination against someone based on their religion.”

The interview, however, ended with Minhaj’s whisper saying, “Guys, I tried.”
