The CRA announced Friday it will strip the Islamic Society of North America Canada’s Development Foundation of its charitable status.

After a nearly two-year-long audit of its books, the CRA said it found evidence linking the group to an organization that funds a terrorist organization in Pakistan.

“The government of Canada has made it clear that it will not tolerate the abuse of the registration system for charities to provide any means of support to terrorism,” a press release from the CRA said.

The CRA audited ISNA’s books between Jan. 1, 2007, to Dec. 31, 2009. Transactions during that time showed a “funding arrangement” between the group and the Kashmiri Canadian Council/Kashmiri Relief Fund of Canada.

That group would send money to the Pakistani-based Relief Organization for Kashmiri Muslims, which is the charitable arm of Jamaat-e-Islami, a political organization that supports the overthrow of India’s government through the activities of the Hizbul Mujahideen, the CRA release said.

Hizbul Mujahideen is considered a terrorist organization by the European Union and government of India, the CRA said.
