Two Florida Imams, Four other American Muslims Arrested for Financing the Taliban
NOTE: It is unclear how the Imams of these two mosques could be financing America’s Jihadist enemies, yet the mosques themselves not involved…
The U.S. Attorney’s office in South Florida charged six people, including the imam of the oldest mosque in Miami, with supporting and financing the Pakistani Taliban.
The men are suspected of giving $50,000 to the terrorist organization, according to the four-count indictment.
Authorities claimed that Hafiz Muhammed Sher Ali Khan, the leader at the mosque, and his sons Irfan Khan and Izhar Khan were arrested Saturday morning.
“Despite being an Imam, or spiritual leader, Hafiz Khan was by no means a man of peace,” U.S. Attorney Wifredo A. Ferrer said in a statement. “Instead, as today’s charges show, he acted with others to support terrorists to further acts of murder, kidnapping and maiming.”
Izhar Khan is the imam at another mosque close to his father’s , but authorities said the mosques are not suspected in any wrongdoing.
