Kamran Bokhari of Al Mohajiroon

Reader comment on item: The U.S. Institute of Peace Stumbles

Submitted by Asad (Pakistan), Jan 9, 2016 at 14:03

Kamran Bokhari is a well known Islamist who was a self proclaimed spokesperson of Al Mohajiroon in USA in the 1990s while at college in Springfield, Missouri, Southwest Missouri State. Over there he was getting fatwas against fellow students from Omar bakri Mohammad. I was a victim of one of those fatwas in which he threatened me with violence "next time." As of consequence of this and being banished from the mosque for my liberal non-orthodox ideas I had to leave town for safety reasons. All this was happening in the US of the 1990s. Given his long employment at Stratfor and the U.S. Institute of Peace it is possible that he has links to U.S. intelligence that is often very close to Islamists for whatever purpose. His book, given his ideological history is therefore worthless as scholarship.

See for example the under and testimony by Aybars, who was my colleague at SMSU in the 1990s and witnessed all of Kamran's mayhem creation in springfield and Kamran's lies on not knowing him. I hope you will take this very seriously, the charlatan appears on tv as some "expert" while others with his record of activities are in prison- this is highly suspicious and potentially dangerous.
