Canadian charity may have indirectly funded terrorism

By Christine Duhaime | July 25th, 2013

A Canada Revenue Agency audit of a Mississauga, Ontario charity called Islamic Society of North America Development Foundation has raised concerns that more than $280,000 was raised by the charity for terrorist financing in Pakistan. Pursuant to the audit, CRA is concerned that the funds were diverted to Hizbul Mujahideen, a group that seeks the succession of Kashmir from India and that tax advantages were used to benefit terrorism. The Hizbul Mujahideen is not, however, a listed entity in Canada, although it is a listed entity in the European Union. The news article in respect of the alleged terrorist financing can be viewed at this link.
