Convicted terrorist, Tahawwur Hussain Rana with dual Pakistani and Canadian citizenship is going to be allowed back in Canada once he is done serving his sentence in the US in 2021 due to a law made by the Trudeau government.
Hussain Rana was charged in 2009 for plotting to kill a Danish journalist that published a cartoon of the Muslim Prophet Mohammed. In addition, he was convicted for providing information to the Pakistani terrorist group responsible for the 2008 Mumbai attacks in which 166 people were killed.
As TNC reports, Rama was one of ten terrorists who were going to have their Canadian citizenship stripped under the previous Harper government. This was due to a law that allowed the government to revoke citizenship dual citizens convicted of terrorism.
However, in 2016, the Trudeau government passed Bill C-6 which protected terrorists from having their citizenship revoked. This came after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau defend his stance on allowing terrorists to keep their citizenship and proclaimed “a Canadian is a Canadian.”
Luckily for Canada, the government of India reportedly wants Rana extradited to their country to face charges related to the 2008 Mumbai attacks.
