I've got my ear to the ground to hear what has become of former Sharon imam Muhammed Masood, who was "voluntarily deported" back to Pakistan in Ocotber 2008. Masood was first picked up by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement in November 2006. (Previous blogposts here.) He was arrested on criminal visa fraud charges in August 2007, and he pleaded guilty to five fraud charges in February 2008.
According to my sources, Hafiz Muhammed Masood is back in Lahore, Pakistan, where he is the imam of an important mosque in Lahore controlled by Jamat e Dawa (the new face of the terrorist group Lashkar e Taiba). Masood reportedly recently celebrated a second marriage to a lady in Lahore. It was quite a big event, I'm told.
Masood's lawyer said this of Masood back in Ocotber 2008, "He is totally petrified of going back to Pakistan." And "he was heartbroken about leaving his wife and eight children and returning to a country where he could be in danger because he preached peace in the United States, said his lawyer, Norman S. Zalkind of Boston." Sounds like Masood is doing just fine though. What do his interfaith supporters in Sharon think of the second wife? What do his own wife and children think?
Meanwhile, Masood's first (?) wife and family are still living in the Islamic Center of New England estate in Sharon, MA, and they are facing deportation charges too. The family applied for political asylum in the U.S., but it was denied. How do you say "chutzpah" in Urdu? That deportation case continues.
