Terrorism charges over Mississauga mosque attack

A man who allegedly attacked worshipers with bear spray and a machete at a Mississauga mosque last March will eventually face terrorism charges.

On March 19, Mohammad Moiz Omar, a 24-year-old man from Mississauga, Ont., walked into the Dar Al-Tawheed Islamic Center, where he allegedly used bear repellent on people there.

The faithful managed to subdue the man without him hurting anyone.

After two and a half months of investigation, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) convinced the Crown to launch terrorism-related proceedings against Mohammad Moiz Omar.

He is currently facing a host of charges, including assault with a weapon, carrying a weapon for a dangerous purpose, death threats and mischief.

However, if the Crown manages to demonstrate that the man engaged in a terrorist activity, the latter could be eligible for a life sentence, provides for the Criminal Code of Canada.

“Our community deserves to feel safe, and this is a fundamental right. For any attempt to endanger the safety of its members, every effort will be made to bring those responsible to justice,” said Peel Regional Police Chief Nishan Duraiappah, who worked with the RCMP during this investigation.
