Nation of Islam Prevents Cop from Entering Harlem Mosque 7

Nation of Islam Prevents Cop from Entering Harlem Mosque 7

Abdul Kareem Muhammad invited NYPD Detective Martin Brown to a community meeting inside the Nation of Islam's Mosque No. 7. The meeting was held in order to bridge a divide over allegations of police brutality.

Det. Brown was assigned to the liaison unit established by Police Commissioner Ray Kelly. On July 30, 2010, the detective arrived at the mosque and was met by organizers who barred him from entering the location unless he relinquished his gun and shield.

The detective refused the order, dutifully waited outside and was finally greeted by Abdul Hafeez Muhammad, the imam of the mosque. The imam apologized to Det. Brown, but backed up the Nation of Islam militants and refused to let the cop into the meeting without surrendering his gun and shield.

An NYPD spokesperson stated, "Det. Brown was invited to the mosque but refused to comply with the request that he enter without his weapon or shield."

The NY Post reported a police source said it was a slap particularly since the detective had showed up in an act of conciliation and outreach.

The bigger problems and questions went unnoticed and unasked. History is usually interesting, but always relevant.
