Inside the Toronto 18 Al Qaeda Inspired, Homegrown Terrorism in the WestBook - 2014
Mubin Shaikh was born and raised in Toronto, Canada amidst twenty-first century, Western values. He attended public school. But his parents insisted he also attend Islamic madrasa. Mubin joined the Canadian Army Cadets, used drugs, had sex and partied just like the other kids. He fit right in - until he didn't. Going through an acute identity crisis at age nineteen, Mubin recommitted himself to Islam. But a chance encounter with the Taliban in Pakistan and then exposure to Canadian extremists took him down the militant jihadi path. Mubin initially celebrated the 9-11 attacks, but later turned against his religion. Mubin went back in - but this time working undercover with the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), ultimately joining the "Toronto 18" to gather inside information about plans for terror attacks.
