Mosque Won’t Bury Suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev As A Muslim

A Mosque won’t bury suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev as a Muslim.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev explained about the Boston bombing’s motivation, saying their religious fervor as Muslims is what triggered the violence.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev had become increasingly devout and confrontational about his Islamic beliefs since 2010, confronting speakers at public events who compared the Prophet Mohammed to Martin Luther King, Jr. and another who said celebrating American holidays was acceptable.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev said his older brother planned the Boston Marathon bombing. Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed by police when exchanging gunfire during the MIT shootout on April 18. The brothers killed a campus patrol officer and carjacked an SUV before the shootout.

The family of Tamerlan Tsarnaev has received permission to bury the body. Tamerlan’s uncle apparently went to the Boston area mosque they attended as a family, only to be told the mosque won’t bury the suspect. Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s aunt relayed this story but cannot say the name of the mosque.

A mosque in Cambridge claims Tamerlan Tsarnaev attended their services, and they claim Tamerlan occasionally caused disruptions to the point that mosque leaders threatened to kick him out. The FBI has already questioned the people of this mosque, and they are not offering any comments.

Imam Talal Eid of the Islamic Institute of Boston says he agrees with the mosque that won’t bury the suspect:

“I would not be willing to do a funeral for him. This is a person who deliberately killed people. There is no room for him as a Muslim.”

What do you think about this Muslim mosque refusing to bury suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev?
