Calgary imam staging hunger strike to draw attention to home-grown terrorism
by Christina Commisso
A prominent Calgary imam is warning that Canadian youth are being recruited by terrorist groups to travel overseas and fight for Islamist militants.
Syed Soharwardy is hoping a two-day hunger strike, which began Friday, will draw attention to what he says is an increasing problem of home-grown terrorism.
"Muslim youth are getting recruited by these fanatics in Canada, in the United States, in Europe, everywhere," Soharwardy, founder of Muslims Against Terrorism, told CTV Calgary.
