New York Imam killed in broad daylight near Queens Mosque

  • New York Imam killed in broad daylight near Queens Mosque

    With burgeoning working-class Bangladeshi population in Queens, a New York imam (55 year old Imam Maulama Akonjee) along with his assistant (64 year old Thara Uddin) was killed close to Al-Furqan Jame Masjid Mosque in Ozone Park in broad daylight after they were walking home after offering mid-day prayer. NYPD Deputy Inspector Henry Sautner told media that there is still no evidence which could indicate that the persons were killed because of their faith. Both the men were shot in the head in the afternoon, who later died at Jamaica Hospital.
