Canada: Muslim caught with $20,000 weapons cache to be deported

Muhammad Aqeeq Ansari“It could have been acceptable that the reason he spent $20,000 purchasing guns and ammunition was the result of the financial irresponsibility of youth and the novelty of having hundreds of thousands of dollars at his disposal. The fact, however that he amassed $20,000 in guns and ammunition over such a short period raises questions and concerns, that remain plausibly unanswered, regarding his motives and whether there was an underlying plan given that he also spent a fair amount of time at the gun range practicing his shot.”

“Pakistani man caught with $20K weapons cache in Peterborough, Ont., will be deported within the month: CBSA,” by Stewart Bell, National Post, June 1, 2015:

TORONTO — A member of a Pakistani terrorist organization who was caught in Ontario with a cache of firearms will be deported within the next month, a Canada Border Services Agency officer said at a hearing Monday.

Muhammad Aqeeq Ansari, who has lived in Canada since 2007, will be deported as soon as travel arrangements have been finalized for himself and the CBSA officers who will escort him to Pakistan, Naureen Ismail said.

Ansari has a valid passport and has waived his right to an assessment of the risks he might face upon his return to his native country, Ismail told the Immigration and Refugee Board at a hearing to decide whether to keep him in custody.

“We anticipate Mr. Ansari’s removal will be effected in the hear future,” Ismail said, arguing he was a flight risk and danger to the public. “We do expect that it will be within the next month but I can’t get any more specific than that right now.”

Ansari refused to participate in the hearing. His lawyer, Derek Lee, a former Liberal MP, did not attend the session. IRB Member Karina Henrique ordered Ansari to remain in detention in Lindsay, Ont., saying his release was “out of the question.”

The IRB stripped Ansari of his permanent resident status and ordered deported last month, ruling he was a member of the terror group Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (SSP), also known as the Ahl-e-Sunnat Wal Jamaal (ASWJ).

In its decision, the IRB said Ansari’s refusal to acknowledge that the SSP had “murdered thousands of people in Pakistan for not sharing their religious views” was “a reflection of either willful blindness or a shared mentality that it is permissible to eliminate anyone who does not share your faith perspective.”

In a basement in Peterborough, Ont., Ansari had stockpiled $20,000 worth of firearms. He made trips to Pakistan to visit a cleric who fought “jihad” in Afghanistan and wrote provocatively about his beliefs on the Internet, once commenting beside a photos of the Toronto Scotiabank Tower, “If I only had a plane.”

The CBSA had linked him to the SSP through his association with Pakistani Deobandi cleric and former jihadist fighter Ilyas Ghuman. Canadian officials said Ansari had been involved with the terror group since before coming to Canada and had been soliciting funds and promoting its goals online.

“It could have been acceptable that the reason he spent $20,000 purchasing guns and ammunition was the result of the financial irresponsibility of youth and the novelty of having hundreds of thousands of dollars at his disposal,” the IRB wrote.

“The fact, however that he amassed $20,000 in guns and ammunition over such a short period raises questions and concerns, that remain plausibly unanswered, regarding his motives and whether there was an underlying plan given that he also spent a fair amount of time at the gun range practicing his shot.”…
