However, the Canadian military involvement in these Islamic majority regions has also led to a manifold rise in religious extremist leaders. In a concerning revelation, several mosques in Canada have been found to incite hatred against the Canadian government’s involvement in Afghanistan, Iraq, and the Middle East, for assisting the US in killing fellow Muslims.
In recent times, there has been a proliferation of extremist Muslims becoming the religious in-charge of Mosques in Canada. Most of Muslim religious leaders in Canada openly say that their religious affiliations are much superior to their nationality and openly speak of an Islamic brotherhood. Such Islamic leaders with communal and fundamentalist dispositions have made easy inroads into a number of mosques in Canada.

In Ottawa, the Canadian capital, there has been a slew of extremist preaching in the Mosques. Many such mosques have propped up even in the vicinity of the Canadian Parliament. There have been reports that Saudi Arabia is funding radical Islamic extremism in non-Muslim nations, including Canada, where the Saudis have contributed millions of dollars.
Many such dubiously funded Mosques have propped up in the Canadian capital which openly preach the Wahabi ideology and advocate unifying all Muslims, forcibly if necessary, under a single fundamentalist theocratic government. It may be mentioned here that Wahabism is one of the major extremist ideologies and considers all non-Muslims as its enemies.
There have been reports by the intelligence and security agencies in Canada that the religious heads of these mosques glorify and revere Islamic fundamentalist figures like Laden, and call upon the Muslims to extend their full ideological support to extremist terror organizations such as Taliban, Al-Qaeda and ISIS.

Thus, at many mosques in Canada, Muslims hear anti-Canadian jihadist sentiments from their Imams. Such jihadist sentiments are primarily disseminated in the Friday prayers, predisposing young impressionable Muslims and even children to perceive the world through militant Islamic eyes and pay heed to the call of Jihad. The mosques mainly disseminate this information in their Friday prayers and are often seen to be using pre-written language , as the Imam is seen to be reading specific lines from a piece of paper.
The content of this pre-written paper has been found to be nearly the same in all the mosques, from where such practices have been located. The Canadian police, despite being aware of the malicious jihadist and anti-Canadian propaganda, has its hands tied down. The local police for some reasons is not allowed to enter the mosques, so they are not able to conduct their investigations properly.
The Canadian government is seen to be quite aware of these threats originating from the mosque, but due to the principles of multiculturalism and the associated laws that govern in Canada, the local law enforcement agencies are not able to do much to curb the growing terrorists in Canada. However, Canada can ill – afford to ignore or take these developments lightly.
If necessary, the government of Canada should use back door access into the mosques in order to get information and ensure the security of the country. Canada has no choice but to take strict action against every mosque that preaches jihad and incites anti-Canadian sentiments.
