  • Tamerlan Tsarnaev was ejected from his Cambridge, Massachusetts mosque three months ago
  • Became enraged after the imam held up Martin Luther King Jr. as an example of a man to emulate
  • It has been claimed that Tamerlan was radicalized inside the U.S. by an unidentified mysterious religious leader

Boston marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev was thrown out of his local mosque for ‘crazy’ behavior after getting involved a ‘shouting match’ with his imam according to one member of the congregation.

Described as being full of rage by a worshiper who would give his name only as Muhammad, Tamerlan was ejected from the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center three months ago for claiming that Martin Luther King Jr. was not a man Muslims should look to emulate.

This revelation comes as Ruslan Tsarni, an uncle of Tamerlan, claimed that his nephew had fallen under the spell of a mysterious religious leader in Cambridge, Massachusetts, who radicalized him and his brother Dzhokhar into committing Monday’s terror outrage.

The dramatic confrontation between Tamerlan and his imam began when the 26-year-old interrupted a solemn Friday prayer service three months ago.

The imam had just offered up assassinated civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. as a fine example of a man to emulate – but this reportedly enraged Tamerlan.

‘You cannot mention this guy because he’s not a Muslim!’ Muhammad recalled Tamerlan shouting, shocking others in attendance according to the LA Times.

Kicked out of the mosque for his outrageous behavior, Tamerlan did return to the prayer service after his outburst according to Muhammad.

‘He’s crazy to me,’ said Muhammad. ‘He had an anger inside.… I can’t explain what was in his mind.’

Anwar Kazmi, a member of the mosque’s board of trustees, told a USA Today reporter that 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who died early Friday morning after a shootout with police, was an infrequent attendee for about a year-and-a-half, while 19-year-old Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, who was captured hiding in a boat in Watertown on Friday night, attended only once. 

Responding to the revelation that both brothers had attended their mosque, the Islamic Society issued a statement to say that while the suspects were known to other worshipers, they could not have predicted their horrific bombing of the Boston marathon which claimed three lives and injured over 180 people.

  1. I think it’s wonderful that there is an organization called “Americans Against Islamophobia”. That is what America is all about. But my own particular dose of Islamophobia would be substantially healed if there were an active organization entitled “Islamists Against Islamic Terrorism”. Does one exist? I’ve often wondered why more prominent Moslems don’t publically denounce violent acts like those that occurred in Boston. My guess is that they would be risking there lives. After all a common target of moslem terrorism in moslem countries is other moslems. What is the truth of this issue?

  2. As Muslims, we speak out against every act of terrorism. The linked list (shown below) is not complete and yet it is long. The past week Islamic organizations and Muslim individuals from around the world have expressed publicly that they do not support these acts and that the acts are against the teaching of Islam. If you are not finding these reports in your news, then your news resource is selective and inaccurate. Sadly, this sort of biased reporting IS what America has come to.
