HOUSTON-AREA FAITH LEADER JOINS MINARET FOUNDATION TO CONDEMN BOMB THREAT 

HOUSTON, SEPT. 11, 2020 – Minaret Foundation and local Houston-area Imam Waleed Basyouni condemn the recent bomb threat made to the University of Houston during a college class Zoom session. 

The alarming news is incredibly troubling and does not represent the ideology and beliefs of Muslims locally, nationally, and worldwide. 

“We were deeply troubled upon learning that a bomb threat was directed towards the University of Houston,” said Shariq Abdul Ghani, Director of Minaret Foundation. “We must all work together to keep our communities safe from harm.”

Clear Lake Islamic Center Imam Dr. Waleed Basyouni joined Minaret Foundation in speaking out against this act of violence.

“The actions this individual has displayed go against Islam’s teachings and everything Muslims stand for,” said Basyouni. “I join the Muslims in our community to unequivocally condemn the act.”

About Minaret Foundation:
