NY Suspect's Mosque Linked to Subversive Islamist Group
A family friend of Ahmad Khan Rahami, the alleged perpetrator of the bombings in N.Y. and N.J., says Rahami attended the Muslim Community of New Jersey mosque and was there two weeks ago, but his overall attendance was "inconsistent." The imam of the mosque is an official with an Islamist group named the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA).
The Muslim Community of New Jersey mosque, which has condemned Rahami's terrorist attacks, lists its imam and religious affairs director as Asif Hirani.
Hirani is also an official with ICNA, serving as the program manager for its proselytizing campaign known as "WhyIslam" and an instructor for a branch of ICNA known as the Islamic Learning Foundation.
