Federal investigators have been questioning various mosque leaders in the Boston area for information about the Boston bombing suspects, Tamerlan and his 19-year-old brother, Dzohkhar Tsarnaev, who’s recovering in a hospital.
On Tuesday, members of The Islamic Society of Boston mosque in Cambridge were questioned, NBC reported. And while that mosque hasn’t yet decided if it would host a funeral for Tsarnaev — with one spokesman admitting that “the things this guy did were absolutely disgraceful,” but that scholars were in charge of making the funeral decision — another has publicly said “no,” NBC reported.
Iman Talal Eid with the Islamic Institute of Boston told the Huffington Post that he “would not be willing to do a funeral for [Tamerlan]. This is a person who deliberately killed people. There is no room for him as a Muslim.”
