Family of Jersey City man assumed drowned alleges anti-Muslim bias
by Terrence T. McDonald
The grieving father of a Jersey City man presumed to have drowned in a state park swimming hole on Thursday is accusing authorities of not searching for his son's body because his family is Muslim.
Police would search for the body of a white person's cat until it was found, not a human Muslim, Mohammad Yaqoob, 58, said this afternoon after a funeral prayer service for his son Wajhat, 21, who authorities believe drowned at Long Pond Ironworks State Park in West Milford on Thursday. His body has not been recovered.
"Two days ago I realized, in America there are three (sets of) laws: for blacks, whites and for Muslims," Mohammad said today.
