Islamic groups offer reward for arrests for crimes committed in Muslim garb
by Laura Cofsky
A recent wave of bank holdups and a homicide committed by men dressed as Muslim women has prompted the Philadelphia-area Islamic community to offer a $20,000 reward for tips that lead to the arrest and conviction of the suspects.
The Majlis Ash Shura, an organization representing the membership of 71 masajids and congregations in the Philadelphia area, was joined by elected officials at a news conference Tuesday at City Hall.
The message from the District Attorney's Office and the Islamic community: zero tolerance.
