Police from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) arrested Shehroze Chaudhry and charged him in court with lying about terrorism activities, saying he was a member of the Syrian Islamic State (ISIS). ISIS has been carrying out many terror attacks in the Gulf region and Chaudhry may be connected to them.
Chaudhry, the 25 years old who hails from Burlington in Ontario, Canada, is a reported member of the terror gang yet has been seen residing and walking freely in Canada. His arrest came shortly after an error of omission and commission on social media platforms telling netizens and media reporters in addition to an unidentified group that he specifically belongs to a jihadist religious group in Syria. He is reported to be part of this group since 2016.
Police officers have said in an affidavit that he is famous amongst the gang by his jihadi Abu Huzaifa, who is a Canadian whereby their said actions are reported to have commenced in the city of Manbij in Syria.
The former Islamic State has been linked with serial killings on account of at least two executions on behalf of the apprehension of the group. He successfully defended this by saying he appeared on the United States Paper “The New York Times”.
Chaudhry went ahead and gave detailed information on denying innocent civilians their life. A mixed reaction from the Canadian Parliament has been reported to exist as they call upon the Government to intervene.
On account of committing the extremist acts, Chaudhry recalled public lashing, crucifixion, and beheading solely which he participated in and ironically he says he suffers from nightmares after carrying out the unlawful acts.
Nevertheless, his return to Canadian land and recently conducted media conferences has given rise to criticism from Politicians from the conservative side of parliament. They want the Government to provide amicable answers to questions posed by the Citizens defense and also need the Federal Government to protect them from future ISIS attacks.
However, the issue of public safety was also openly advised by the Canadian Superintendent Christopher deGale who issued a statement, “Hoaxes can generate fear within our communities and create the illusions, there is a potential threat to Canadians while we have determined otherwise.”
The Superintendent concluded by saying, “As a result, The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) takes these allegations very seriously particularly when individuals by their actions calling the police to investigations in which humans and financial resources are invested and diverted from other ongoing priorities.” From the Superintendent’s view, there seem to be allegations that need to be crosschecked accurately.
Meanwhile, the Federal Police has announced similar charges of terror-related crimes carried out against an unknown man aged 30. The victim is from Alberta and detectives say the alleged terrorist joined ISIS in the year 2013. The terrorist committed many offenses related to kidnapping and was involved in other offenses against the law.
The court, however, pushed the case to November 16 and according to the law, he risks spending 5 years in jail.
