On Wednesday, Canadian politician Jagmeet Singh was holding a meeting with his constituents in Brampton, Ontario, Canada, when a woman who mistook him for a Muslim, stood up and began an Islamophobic rant about Sharia Law.
The woman went on to shout accusations at Singh who responded in a brilliant way.
Singh, a Sikh, is not only a frontrunner for the New Democratic Party's leadership but also a member of the Candian Parliament.
He is known by the nickname "Jagmeet and Greet", which he shiningly lived up to when he responded to the heckler.
The video, taken by Brampton Focus, has since gone viral and has been viewed more than 30 million times.
Watch: This Sikh politician’s response to a racist heckler is winning hearts in Canada:
After the incident, Singh tweeted a written letter as a response to the event with the hashtag #LoveAndCourage, which was later trending on social media.
Social media users were quick to promote his hashtag. Existing supporters, and even those outside of his political party showed solidarity:
"Leaders emerge when they prevail in situations that everyone knows can go very badly."
"Hate is wrong..."
"Jagmeet Singh has some experience dealing with racist hecklers."
Some pointed out the blatant stupidity of the racist women...
This comes after reports that hate crimes against Muslims in Canada increased by 253 percent between 2012 and 2015, according to a study from Statistics Canada.
In 2012, just 45 hate crimes against Muslims were reported by police.
By 2015, the number shot up to 159.
Overall, hate crimes in Canada increased by 5 percent in 2015, largely due to "incidents targeting certain religious and ethnocultural groups, specifically the Muslim population and Arabs or West Asians," the report said.
Between 2014 and 2015 alone, hate crimes targeting Muslims increased by nearly 67 percent.
