In the same way as Muslim groups and Islamic supremacists in America scrub their narrative of the jihadic doctrine and the brutal and bloody sharia, so have they finally scrubbed the ICNA website of Ashrafuzzaman Khan (although as of Friday, Khan is still listed on the contact page for the North American Imams Federation Northeast regional office).
I'd like to know what took so long. Why did they stand behind this vicious, bloodthirsty savage all this time? Because he is a devout Muslim adhering to islamic texts and teachings?
These are the moderates that everyone is banking on. Nuts.
I have been reporting on the ICNA NY President and vicious war criminal, Ashrafuzzaman Khan, for almost two years now, here and here and here and here. Witnesses have clearly identified Ashrafuzzaman Khan as the "chief killer" of the intellectuals (here).
ICNA, like Hamas-CAIR, is a terror front group whose "Muslim advocacy" front masks their true Islamic supremacist agenda. Despite the carefully constructed myth surrounding Muslim Brotherhood groups in America, advanced by a hostile and pro-jihadist media, the truth about these killers is out there.
ICNA's NY president, Ashrafuzzaman Khan, is charged in the abductions and deaths of 18 people during the 1971 war with Pakistan that led to Bangladesh’s independence. When called for comment, Khan said, “I don’t know what is happening in Bangladesh. I am not a citizen of Bangladesh.” He sounds just like those Nazi war criminals when discovered living new lives in America (or Paraguay, Uruguay, Buenos Aires, et al). The only difference is that the Nazis were hiding. These Islamic supremacists are held up as role models and pillars of tolerance and interfaith ishcabibble by media and clueless politicians.
ICNA is long known to Atlas readers. ICNA runs those bus ads (along with CAIR) proselytizing for Islam. It was those very ICNA ads that were the impetus for my first bus campaign. The media loved ICNA's ad, but I had to sue to get our pro-freedom ads up.
ICNA New York Scrubs Accused War Criminal From Web Page by IPT News • Oct 18, 2013
A verdict against New York resident Ashrafuzzaman Khan for alleged crimes against humanity during Bangladesh's 1971 war of independence could come any day. Testimony before a war crimes tribunal wrapped up in late September.
Khan, a naturalized American and a leader of the Islamic Circle of North America's (ICNA) New York chapter, is accused of being the "chief executor" of a killing squad loyal to the Pakistani army. As Bangladesh moved toward independence, the squad allegedly rounded up intellectuals – scholars, doctors and journalists – and then tortured and killed them to deprive the new nation of leadership.
Niether he nor ICNA has commented publicly since the charges were issued.
Last week, the ICNA New York chapter quietly removed the names of executive board members, including Khan, from its web page. Previous IPT stories on Khan linked to that page when it included Khan's name. A writer identified only as Shehab described asking ICNA back in July whether the chapter's board member was the same man facing the war crimes tribunal.
If it is the same man, Shehab said he wrote in his email to ICNA ,"does ICNA have any plan to initiate its own investigation about the role of Ashrafuz Zaman Khan in Bangladesh during 1971 and the channel which associated him with ICNA hiding his past?"
He received no response until last week. After the web page was scrubbed, Shehab says he received an email from ICNA Secretary Hafiz Zafeer Ali. "He advised me to 'focus on my study and do not involve [in] back home politics'," Shehab wrote.
Khan previously served as ICNA's secretary general. He and Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin, a prominent imam in the United Kingdom who helped create the Muslim Council of Britain, were tried in absentia. One eyewitness, a hostage who escaped before he could be killed, testified that he saw Khan giving orders to the death squad members. Other witnesses said they later recognized Khan as the man who took their relatives away at gunpoint after his picture appeared in Bangladeshi newspapers.
ICNA was founded by South Asian Muslims and its constitution draws heavily from the Jamaat-e-Islami. The Jamaat was loyal to Pakistan during the 1971 war. The killing squad, known as Al Badar, was a Jamaat offshoot.
ICNA's curriculum also emphasizes writings by Jamaat founder Syed Abul Ala Maududi. He advocated that Muslims "must strive to change the wrong basis of government, and seize all powers to rule and make laws from those who do not fear God."
As of Friday, Khan remained listed on the contact page for the North American Imams Federation Northeast regional office.
