A recent Global News investigation provided a rare glimpse into the life of an alleged former jihadist who is back in Canada, living freely in Toronto.
The Pakistani-born Canadian citizen graduated from a Toronto high school in 2012. He then moved to Pakistan to go to university and began attending a mosque affiliated with an Islamist terrorist group.
His mosque told him to join the jihad, so he travelled to Syria and took up arms with Islamic State (ISIS). He became an officer in ISIS’ so-called “morality” police.
