Spying for Islam

Mubin Shaikh spent two years as an intelligence service mole inside an Islamist cell which was allegedly plotting to blow up Canada's Parliament buildings and behead the Prime Minister. Mubin lost his standing within the Muslim community for his role, and became a controversial figure when it was revealed that he was paid $300,000 for his services.

Mubin tells Dick that despite everything, he would do it again as a matter of both principle and faith.

Update: On March 24, 2009 Mubin Shaikh was cleared from charges of entrapment by a Judge in a Brampton Court. "There has not been any entrapment and there has not been any abuse of process," Judge Sproat told the court. "It's clear the application must be dismissed."
