Man accused of planning to attack Toronto

Living in the terrorism era, where cultural differences have the possibility to conduct to conflicts which may develop even further in major events, bringing death upon the ‘opposite’ camp/faith/culture/religion, a recent event has been recorded as a terrorism attempt at the US consulate in Toronto.

Jahanzeb Malik, 34 years old, was arrested March 9 by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), under suspicion of national threat even though he hasn’t been charged with anything, but CBSA acted towards his deportation. The reason of his deportation, which people easily accept as being legit, is demonstrating a violent extremist mindset and was advocating for extremist ideology while also planning an attack on the U.S. consulate in Toronto. It is known that Malik was admitted to Canada as a student and got permanent residence status, which allowed him to come back into Canada after travelling abroad.

Words like “This demonstrates that they are working well and this also demonstrates that the threat is real and that we need to be able to tackle this threat and with our many tools in C-51.” have been spoken by the officials, even though Malik’s arrest was made without the enhanced powers. The incident is used as an image of the necessity for the Harper government’s new anti-terrorism legislation, Bill C-51. Malik was accused, by the Minister of Public Safety Steven Blaney, of being an ISIS supporter and was promoting a “jihadi ideology.”

Therefore, no matter how careful and prepared the authorities want us to believe they are, incidents still happen and all we can do is to hope that they will keep being prevented by the ones who are supposed to “serve and protect” us.
