Mosque calls Sun story 'categorically false'
by Anthony Furey
An Ottawa mosque visited by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau this week said it's "categorically false" that their imam has links to a terror group.
The Sun reported Monday that Ottawa Muslim Association's imam, Samy Metwally, is listed as a member of the International Union of Muslim Scholars on the OMA's website. The IUMS was designated a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates and faces criticism from various experts for its supposed ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
"These accusations are, of course, categorically false in what they insinuate and grossly unfair," OMA President Naeem Malik said in a statement. "The OMA and Imam Metwally do not have any ties to terrorist organizations nor do they harbour any ideology in favour of terrorism or extremism."
