Virginia Mosque leader Resigns

Jun 12, 2017

Imam Johari Abdul-Malik has resigned from the board of directors of the Dar al Hijrah mosque in Virginia when it failed to fire the senior Imam Shaker Elsayed after he made a speech praising the virtues of female genital mutilation, a barbaric practice carried out on young girls in many predominantly Muslim countries in order to keep women from having normal sexual desires or pleasure. It is outlawed in the United States and most other countries in the world. Abdul-Malik had objected to other statements made by this same Imam, and when the board refused to act this time he called it quits.
