Ehsanul Islam Sadequee and Syed Haris Ahmed engaged in paramilitary training, traveled to Canada to meet with other supporters of “violent jihad,” and developed casing video clips on “symbolic and infrastructure targets of potential terrorist attacks” to establish “credentials,” according to their indictment. The pair traveled to Pakistan to join Lashkar-e-Taiba for religious education and paramilitary training. It is unclear from available court records whether they ever made contact with the terrorist group.
