The National Council of Canadian Muslims is calling on a Toronto-area Conservative candidate to step aside following reports about her past social media posts.

Nadia Hasan, acting executive director of the council, said Saturday that Ghada Melek's alleged comments on Islam and the LGBTQ2 community show she "wouldn't know how to serve" all citizens in the very diverse riding of Mississauga-Streetsville.

Melek is running against incumbent Liberal MP Gagan Sikand.
