Violent jihad a ‘duty’ for Ottawa terror Muslim: Judge

A convicted homegrown terrorist believed violent jihad was a “duty” and yearned to see the malignant spread of Taliban-style theocratic government, according to the judge who will sentence him.

Misbahuddin Ahmed, a married father of three, faces a maximum sentence of 24 years after a jury convicted him in July of conspiring to facilitate terror and of financing terror, setting the stage for a sentencing hearing slated to start Tuesday.
