Shobie Kapoor, of Canadian Patriotic Society — a grass roots citizens group — insisted Sunday that Khadr will be used by Islamic extremists as a “propaganda machine on the GTA mosque circuit.”
She said Khadr, 26, can also be used to raise funds and recruits at Toronto-area mosques when he’s freed.
“He will draw out all the jihadis,” Kapoor said. “They will all pay big money to see him.”
Her group gave Scarborough Centre MP Roxanne Jame a 100-name petition which calls for Khadr to be charged with treason. The Conservative MP is expected to pass it along this week to Public Safety Minister Vic Toews.
Khadr, now 26, was seven weeks shy of his 16th birthday when he tossed the hand grenade that killed a U.S. army medic during a firefight in Afghanistan.
