In his mandate
letter to Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Canadian Heritage,
Canada’s prime minister Justin Trudeau wrote:
I will expect you to work with your colleagues and

Born and raised in Canada, Mubin Shaikh is a former security intelligence and counter terrorism operative. At the age of 19, he went to India and Pakistan where he had a chance encounter with the Taliban prior to their takeover of Afghanistan in 1995. Mubin became fully radicalized as a supporter of the global Jihadist culture, recruiting others and establishing his network in the extremist milieu.
The 9/11 attacks forced to him reconsider his views. Returning to Canada in 2004, he became a undercover operator with the Canadian Security Intelligence Service and worked several CLASSIFIED investigations. In late 2005, one of those files moved to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Integrated National Security Enforcement Team (INSET) and Mubin traversed to what came to be known as the “Toronto 18” terrorism case resulting in the conviction of 11 aspiring violent extremists.
He has since obtained a Master of Policing, Intelligence and Counter Terrorism (MPICT), is now a PhD candidate in Psychological Sciences studying radicalization, deradicalization and violent extremism at the University of Liverpool, Tactical Decision Making Research Group.

appreciate a response by 4pm October 9, 2019. If you require more
time please let me know.
the same day Mubin Shaikh responded;
1. I know who you are and I don’t like
you one bit.
2. None of those people you mentioned,
believes in bringing Shariah Law in Canada. The 5th columnist
HizbutTahreer group however, have this laughable dream that the world
should come under ShariahLaw and those people can go f*ck themselves.
