The leader of the Pakistani CiU (Convergence and Union Party), Khalid Shabaz, aka Chuhan, is a radical Islamist who was arrested in 2011 by police for fraud and forgery of documents. Chuhan was also photographed on a recent trip to his country wearing traditional Pakistani dress (shalwaar kameez) and a machine gun in his hands, accompanied by a fellow carrying a rifle.
He founded the Catalan Federation of Pakistanis and now heads the Asian Area of another organization, Nous Catalans. Nous Catalans was recently targeted with connections to radical Islam. In fact, the former head of the Moroccan area of this organization and president of the Union of Islamic Centers in Catalonia, Noureddine Ziani, was expelled from Spain a year ago at the request of the National Intelligence Centre (CNI) after being considered “a danger to the security of Spain.”
