According to the Associated Press, the FBI “murdered” Luqman Ameen Abdullah, the leader of a mosque in Detroit and a radical sect called Ummah during a raid on a warehouse. On Oct. 30 The Associated Press published an article, titled “Murdered Imam’s Followers Deny FBI Radical Claims.” And lest this be considered a case of bad headline writing, the claim is repeated in the first sentence of the article:
A mosque on Friday dismissed as “utterly preposterous” the FBI’s allegations that its murdered leader was part of a radical Islamic group.
The good news is that an alliance of Muslim groups, including the notorious jihad-friendly Council on American-Islamic Relations, is calling for an investigation into the “murder”:
In Washington, a group called the American Muslim Taskforce on Civil Rights and Elections called for an independent investigation of Abdullah’s death.
The group is an umbrella organization whose members include the American Muslim Alliance, American Muslims for Palestine and Council on American-Islamic Relations.
