T&T CONTROVERSIAL IMAN IN HOT WATERS AGAIN
Police say they are investigating a sermon by Imam Yasin Abu Bakr
Police say they are investigating a sermon by Yasin Abu Bakr that has raised questions and caused some concern in the public domain.
One day after he delivered a sermon during the Jamaat Al Muslimeen’s weekly Jummah at Mucurapo Road, where he called on the authorities to clean up its act as it relates to education, human rights and the ongoing socio-economic decline, Imam Yasin Abu Bakr says he is standing by his words which reflect the truth.
Dismissing allegations that excerpts from the address could be interpreted as inciteful and even instigative, he claimed there were mischief makers and spin doctors always looking for hidden meanings and salacious headlines in his words.
Yasin Abu Bakr (born Lennox Philip c. 1941) is the leader of the Jamaat al Muslimeen, a Muslim group in Trinidad and Tobago. The group staged an attempted coup d’état in 1990.
