MNA Editorial Desk: A Canadian fugitive wanted for incitement to commit genocide against Jews is currently living in Dhaka, according to Canada’s National Post.
Salman Hossain, who is wanted by Canadian authorities and Interpol, was photographed in Dhaka’s Gulshan on Sunday.
Hossain first drew the attention of Canadian authorities a decade ago over Internet posts urging ‘Muslim militants’ to attack Canada and for the ‘extermination’ of Jews.
In 2009 Canada declined to press charges against Hossain after he stopped posting online and underwent rehabilitation.
But Hossain resumed his activities soon afterwards, calling for the ‘extermination’ of Jewish peoples in North America and Europe.
The posts prompted Toronto’s York University to expel him in March 2010 and the police to open a new investigation. Hossain fled the country before charges could be pressed.
In July 2010 Hossain became the first person in Canada to be charged for advocating genocide.
The National Council of Canadian Muslims (then CAIR Canada) had described Hossain as ‘disgusting’ and had supported the charges against him.
