But have they fired the ideology that led to his subversive actions and arrest? From the News-Sentinel, with thanks to PRCS:
Leaders of the Lodi Mosque have voted to fire Shabbir Ahmed, the imam who has been arrested on immigration charges and accused of supporting the Taliban.
“He will not return to our mosque,” said Muhammed Shoaib, mosque president, who added that the decision by board members to terminate Ahmed was unanimous. They voted on Ahmed’s dismissal Sunday night.
Arrested earlier this month on immigration violations, Ahmed acknowledged in court Friday that he made speeches in Pakistan supporting the Taliban in its fight against the United States. He said he regrets those comments now, having come to see Americans’ “true value and respect for human life.”
