SAN FRANCISCO (Diya TV) — Two anti-India organizations—Indian Mujahideen (IM) and al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS)—have been designated as terrorist entities under Canada’s Criminal Code.

Public safety and emergency preparedness minister Ralph Goodale made the announcement Wednesday.

Canadian officials said In a statement that the Indian Mujahideen had “organized training in Pakistan with militant Islamist groups such as Lashkar-e-Tayyiba — a listed entity under the Criminal Code.” As a result of the listing, Canada will act against groups or individuals funding or associating with either of the organizations.

“It is a crime to knowingly participate in, or contribute to, any activity of a listed entity for the purpose of enhancing the ability of the entity to facilitate or carry out a terrorist activity,” the statement said.

Public Safety Canada noted the “actions” of the two groups “meet the legal threshold set out in the Criminal Code.”

The government body goes on to describe the Indian Mujahideen as “a Sunni Islamist militant group, consisting primarily of former members of the Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI),” adding that it it “is best understood as a label for a relatively amorphous, decentralised network that operates through a number of modules across India.”

The Canadian list now totals 53 entities, including Khalistani groups such as Babbar Khalsa International and International Sikh Youth Federation.
