Asad Jafri (Arabic: أسد جعفري) is the Canada-based computers professional turned militant anti-Semitic mullah. Asad was born and raised in Toronto, where he grew up in a highly active Islamist community led by none other than the infamous extremist anti-Semitic mullah Mohammed Zaki Baqri of Alipur, Karnataka.
Asad Jafri is a frequent indoctrinator at Shia Association of Bay Area (Saba Mosque of San Jose) and a close associate and a relative of the blacklisted extremist mullah Nabi Raza Mir (a.k.a. Nabi Raza Abidi).
Open support for terrorism
Asad Jafri openly supports the international terror organization Hezbollah. In his speeches to Khomeinist congregations in Canada and the United States, he does not shy away from promoting the dangerous outlaw organization. For instance, during one of his abhorrent militancy indoctrination sessions, he announced:
Education in the United States
After completing his high school studies in Canada, Asad Jafri moved to the United States to pursue a college degree in the technology field. He received a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science in 1998.

Marriage to Zehra Baqri
A lifelong follower of Zaki Baqri, Asad Jafri asked for the hand of the daughter of his imam and role model. As Asad is a member of the South Asian Syed caste group and raised under the watchful eyes of Zaki, the latter obliged and Asad joined Zehra Baqri in matrimony.
Asad the mullah
Asad Jafri had a chronic attraction to the idea of becoming a mullah and community leader. He grew up in the shadow of a mullah and ultimately married his highly indoctrinated daughter. In 2004, Asad took the first step towards making his chronic dream come true and relocated to Qum, Iran, along with his family. Both and he and his wife Zehra entered into the Hawza (religious seminary) and began their theology studies.
Asad Jafri commenced his tabligh missions as early as 2006, when he started touring Islamist Khomeinist centers in both American and Canadian cities. His stops in the United States included Atlanta, Dallas, San Jose (at Shia Association of Bay Area (Saba Islamic Center)), and Phoenix.
Asad Jafri has also participated in numerous Ramadan programs in various Khomeinist centers in Toronto. He is also involved in the youth program at COI radio station.
Asad Jafri continues to study and reside in Qum.
Attitude towards the United States
Asad Jafri is openly hostile towards the United States. He frequently attack the policies of the U.S. Government and openly promotes Khomeinism among the misguided American youths who frequent Islamist centers such as SABA in San Jose.
Asad Jafri is a typical Khomeinist. Hence, his political views do not deviate from the standard line of the Iranian regime and its Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
