Canadian extremist in Dhaka!

Online Desk | Update:

canadaA Canadian fugitive, who is wanted for advocating genocide against Jews, is staying in Dhaka, said the National Post, a Canadian media.

The report said Salman Hossain, a Canadian extremist who fled Canada earlier this year during a police investigation into use of the Internet to promote terrorist violence in Canada.

The report claimed that fugitive Salman has recently been photographed in Dhaka.

The report also said a photographer caught the 32-year-old former Toronto resident outside a cafe in the Gulshan area of the capital city.

Salman is the subject of an Ontario Provincial Police warrant and an Interpol notice that urges police worldwide to locate and arrest him, the report added.

 “That individual is still wanted,” acting staff Sgt. Peter Leon of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) of Canada was quoted to have said.

The OPP conducted the investigation that resulted in Salman becoming the first person charged in Canada with advocating genocide, the report further said.

It mentioned Salman was charged with the crime in July 2010 and he is facing a total of five counts that could see him imprisoned for 16 years.

The OPP was also quoted to have said it would do “everything in our power to bring him to justice.”

Since Salman left Canada shortly before the charges were approved, hints of his whereabouts have appeared online.

The local Bangla language can be heard in a video posted last September in which he watched men slitting the neck of a goat, it added.

“This is how the evil Yahud (Jews) and their helpers and slaves need to be executed when caught and punished worldwide,” said the report quoting his post on YouTube.

“Daesh have you forgotten your duties to target Israel and important Jews yet?” Daesh is another name for ISIL.
