Well integrated Ontario Muslim ‘integral’ member of terror group, immigration officials say

A 30-year-old Ontario resident has been denied bail on immigration charges after a hearing was told he is an “integral” member of an extremist group based overseas.

Muhammad Aqeeq Ansari, a 30-year-old software designer living in Toronto, allegedly maintained a website for Ahl-e-Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ) – which is listed as a terrorist organization in Pakistan and the United Kingdom, but not in Canada.
