A lone gunman gunned down a Queens imam and wounded his assistant as the pair walked home from their mosque after Saturday afternoon prayers, police and witnesses said.

The attacker shot each man in the head from close range in what members of the mosque quickly denounced as a hate crime. Both victims were dressed in Muslim garb when they were targeted, police sources said.

Alala Uddin Akongi, the married father of three, was a revered religious leader since his arrival in Queens from Bangladesh less than two years ago. His assistant, 60-year-old Thara Uddin, was desperately fighting for his life.

The shooter fled the scene on foot — leaving his victims lying in their own blood . . .

Queens imam shot to death by gunman in attack the Muslim community has denounced as a hate crime

This story is interesting because the shooting was done, in my opinion, based on very cursory information, efficiently.

Local people were blaming the shooting on Donald Trump's rhetoric. The police said it is not a hate crime. I wonder, myself, if it is some internal matter, within the Muslim community. Shooting the rival Imam or the politically opposed Mullah is certainly not unheard of in places like Iraq.

Little early to call it a hate crime without even knowing the perpetrator.
Execution style killing is certainly not a sign of love however.
No mention of a robbery either, eh?

It had to have been a hate crime, at least in the medias eye's.




According to two police sources who spoke to NBC 4 New York, their initial investigation into the crime indicates it was motivated by a robbery.

What got me about the story initially was that I've been watching CBSN online, off and on, all day and didn't see this, but out of boredom I switched to France 24 and they were reporting it. Then I found it on the NY Daily News site.

As I read the title I was thinking why has the Queen of England got a Imam??.

I see Trump is getting the blame on the source headline, maybe it was just a lone nut or someone that was mentally Ill, there are a lot of incidents of this going on you just need to look at all the attacks of recent to see that.... Hate crimes do not even exist, or they do not as far as the regressive left media are concerned..


Oh they do exist when they serve their agenda or the attacker was not a member of the religion of peace..

People will blame Trump until it shows it was a democrat who did it, then they will blame guns.

Either way it's a win-win for the leftists.

Senseless violence to anyone else with half a brain.

I don´t know if such phrases are common in your media but it´s a red flag for me. Too much emotion pushing in my eyes. Either intended or just bad writer. I really don´t know if it´s common but it raises concerns. I don´t know why it´s just a feeling.

I find it a bit respectless towards the victims. Maybe it´s just me.

What I find ironic is people claim Trump has no support in the Hispanic population. But then suddenly they are blaming Trump for a Hispanic shooting them. God it's a good thing he wasn't white or we would get 3 or 4 days talking about how Trump's statements killed these two.

I don't think they know anything about the shooter, do they? There is CCTV footage of him running away from the scene, but he is still at large.

The second man shot has died according to reports.

I knew something was going to happen soon. Looks like the Muslim brigade is going to start opening up in the USA. Along with Black Lives Matters, the race war will start soon.

Just what the US needs, sectarian violence.

What's next, car bombs?

Maybe hillary can arm the opposition.

Ya its strange, it's almost like the Trump crows complaining about the "PC Police" and Snowflake SJWs, but then turning tail and not liking Obama's language.

Well, that is just as silly as the young man in TX claiming that he wasn't at fault because he was too rich and spoiled by his parents.

Huh right on time to fill the news slots with more division and focus on the psy-op known as Donald Trump...

possible crime against muslims based solely on religion in the US, psy op / false flag by left/ loner

possible crime against non muslim by possible muslim...' the religion of peace strikes again, terrorists, keep muslim out of the US amongst other less flattering ideas.

if it was an eye for en eye society would have faded into obscurity long long long ago.

vote Trump.
