Mubin Shaikh: a hero stopping terrorists

17 al-Qaeda inspired people were recently arrested in Ontario, Canada, variously for the plotting of: bombing, political kidnappings, storming Parliament, and beheading our Prime Minister. The went so far as to train for a period of time at a secluded location, and to purchase materials to make a lot of explosives. Had they not been stopped, a great many people would have died.

Mubin Shaikh voluntarily infiltrated them, eventually leading to the arrests. Now, rather than going into hiding, he has gone public.

He was a hero for stopping a plot that would have killed many people.

He continues to be a hero for standing up for his religious community and for Canada.
