Abdullah Rashid, a Georgia native who moved into a subsidized apartment community in Minnesota, tries to implement shariah law… .
Apparently, his landlord is not amused… .
On Wednesday, Minneapolis police said the Cedar-Riverside Towers’ management is in the process of evicting Rashid, and security at Cedar-Riverside Plaza is advising him he’s not allowed to patrol the neighborhood or they will cite him for trespassing.”
Apparently, he has recruited a gaggle of like-minded yutes to assist him with his patrols, and, offers legal advice too. Helpful, no?
Rashid, who initially said he was working with Minneapolis police, said he is continuing his effort to provide security and protect Muslims’ civil rights. He said he has enlisted a group of 10 men, ages 18 and 25, to help him patrol the area.
Meanwhile some in the community are confused about what Rashid is doing.
Salma Mohamed, a mother of four, met with him recently at Brian Coyle Community Center, seeking advice on a custody case. A friend had referred her to Rashid, unaware of his controversial activities. She was startled by his uniform, she said, and his talk about terrorism and the young Muslim men who were convicted of trying to join ISIS.
“I was expecting the guy was a lawyer,” Mohamed said. “He just brought up things that weren’t even on the discussion table.”
