Bangladeshi-born Canadian citizen Salman An-Noor Hossain, who fled to Bangladesh in 2010 after the law enforcement in Canada charged him for several cases, found living in Dhaka for the past seven years. He is on the red list of Interpol, as well as ‘wanted’ in Canada.
Hossian is accused of advocating genocide and encouraging hate crimes in Canada. According to the Canadian media, if Hossain is found guilty, he could face up to 16-year imprisonment. Hossain was known for his anti-Semitic writing, which became more aggressive in nature in later years. Several Jewish organizations in Canada filed a complaint against him for operating a website called “Filthy Jewish Terrorists”.
He is also accused of establishing relations with jihadists including 18 terrorists involved in the conspiracy of carrying out major terror attacks in the city of Toronto in 2006. In March 2010, Hossain faced huge public outrage over his online remarks on the Jews but escaped arrest due to lack of sufficient evidence. However, in July 2010, law enforcement charged him for promoting genocide and hate crimes against Jews.
Before the charges against him were filed in Canada, Hossain fled the country in May 2010. Following his disappearance, Canadian police informed the Interpol that issued an arrest warrant against him and put his name on their Most Wanted list.
According to a report, Hossain, who is now 32, has been living in Dhaka for the past seven years. In the latest photograph, Hossain was spotted outside an international coffee house in Dhaka’s Gulshan area. The photograph suggests that he made a drastic change in his appearance by losing weight and shaving head. Hossain is reportedly residing in an apartment in Dhaka’s Diyabari and drives a silver Corolla.
