GOP congresswoman trying to stop deportation

Jamal not only has the media on his side. He has two Washington politicians working diligently on his behalf – including a Republican congresswoman.

Rep. Lynn Jenkins, R-Kansas

Rep. Lynn Jenkins, R-Kansas, filed private legislation in the U.S. House or Representatives that would make Jamal and his wife lawful permanent residents by fiat.

Jenkins is working with Emanuel Cleaver, D-Missouri, on the legislation to give Syed and his wife amnesty. Their bill was introduced Feb. 13, 2018.

Jamal’s supporters launched a petition drive at Change.org The petition describes him as a model citizen and an “ethnic minority” who will face persecution if he returns to Bangladesh. This is a deceptive ploy given the fact that Bangladesh is 86-percent Muslim and it is the Hindu, Buddhist and Christian minorities who typically face persecution.

Syed Ahmed Jamal has a twitter account with 16 followers. Three of his followers listed below are a New York Times columnist, a writer from the KC Star, and former Mayor of Kansas City, Missouri.

A tweet from Syed Ahmed Jamal posted December 2, 2018 appears to defend the death penalty for homosexuals as prescribed by Sharia (Islamic Sacred Law) and hate preacher Zakir Naik.

This tweet comes less than a year after Syed’s arrest by ICE.

Syed Ahmed Jamal is a leader with the Lawrence Islamic Center that hosted hate preacher Khalid Yasin in 2010. Khalid Yasin has also stated that homosexuals who are convicted according to Sharia, the punishment is death. VIDEO BELOW.

Islamic preacher Zakir Naik says he has not broken any law December 03, 2018

“But because I was spreading peace, I was giving solution for humanity, all the people who don’t like peace to prevail, they don’t like me,” he said, adding he was being targeted because of his work to spread Islam.

“This doesn’t go down [well with] the enemies of Islam. Be it western countries or the country I was born in, India.” 

Naik has been controversial because of his puritan brand of Islam — recommending the death penalty for homosexuals and those who abandon Islam as their faith, according to media reports.

In a clip on Youtube, Naik says that if Osama bin Laden “is terrorising America the terrorist, the biggest terrorist, I am with him”.

Bangladesh suspended a television channel that featured his preaching after media reported that militants who attacked a Dhaka cafe killing 22 people last year were admirers of him. IS claimed responsibility for the attack.

Britain banned Naik from entering in 2010.

I posed a question on February 20, 2020 to KC Star reporter Rick Montgomery and Syed Ahmed Jamal asking for clarity on the “Death penalty” tweet from Syed.
