The death of Imam Luqman Ameen Abdullah
Imam Luqman was 53, when death claimed him, triggered by the same law enforcers that were supposed to be protecting him.He was known by another name as Christopher Thomas. He was the holy leader of a mosque called Masjid Al-Haqq, a Sunni Muslim group. He was of an African-American citizen. He was the delegate who represented the Detroit Muslim Community. Among his visions was to state in America that would be governed by the Sharia laws. Imam Luqman was killed on 28th October 2010 on a raid that was conducted by the F.B.I.after a shootout in Detroit. He was shot multiple gun wounds that totaled twenty. The reason behind the point blank execution of Imam Luqman was that his mosque was involved in activities that were illegal. After the capture of his cohorts they were charged with the trading and illegal possessions of firearms and other malicious acts. Still there was the case of Umar Farouk Aldulmutallab, the Nigerian who had attempted to explode a flight. These two men are of he same ilk and the same caliber. The personal thoughts that may cross through to the ex stereo types and the Middle East is that they will be subjects to scrutiny. This personal phobia may be powered by the fact that it is still the Muslim suicide who pioneered the bombing on the Twin Towers on September 11th that claimed so many lives.Then, when you spice the suicides with the recent death of Osama Bin Laden, the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks the mere cases are ingredients for worry and a recipe for scrutiny to the American Muslims and (or) with the citizens that are of middle east origin. The people with Arabic origin may think that when the American government stems up the war against terrorism and related suicides, it may be primarily targeting them and (or) the belief that are based on faith or religion. There are those Muslims citizens who felt that Imam Luqman death portrayed injustice and called for the members of their community not to be buddies with the agents and this is because the slain leader had not been charged with terrorism in the court of law. Also the execution of the imam had emotions as to the forms of law enforcement applied by the American government,”…raises deep concerns regarding the use of lethal force by law enforcement agents.”The other thought that to mind is f you fall out of kilter or out of step with the other religion, faith or beliefs you become a target for elimination. Still when the reports claimed that imam wanted to introduce a state in the American soil that would be governed by the Sharia laws it would be deemed impossible simply because he couldn’t overpower the American forces. This means that a person is killed and lies are hatched as to convince the other people that the man was a rogue, to give satisfactory clues when innocent men are killed. A Muslim person is quoted as saying.”…there has been a large media country portraying us as the potential threat within America.”This means that even if one is arrested or convicted with terrorism, the other religion members too falls in that category.Also, there is a situation where he was set-up in the church. A secret agent that voiced his concern, albeit a phony one, of wanting to blow up a field during Super Bowl. The agents could be luring him to terrorism considering what he (Akbar, Journey into America :the challenge of Islam)said”…I don’t want to kill innocent people.”It may be that the charges about his execution were a cover up.
