1990 INSURRECTIONIST LEADER IMAM YASIN ABU BAKR IS DEAD

Leader of the Jamaat-al Muslimeen, Imam Yasin Abu Bakr has died. 

The Imam, who celebrated his 80th birthday among family and friends earlier this week, passed away on Thursday evening. 

Full circumstances surrounding the Imam’s death are not currently totally clear. However, Police reported that Bakr, a diabetic, collapsed at his home at Long Circular Road, St James on Thursday night (10/21/21) and was taken to the St James Health Facility, where he was declared dead.

Yesterday also marked the one-year anniversary of his wife’s death.

Abu Bakr was a longstanding leader in Trinidad and Tobago’s Islamic landscape.  

He was most known for leading the 1990 insurrection which led to the deaths of dozens of people and injured many more.  

The news was subtly confirmed by his son Fuad Abu Bakr who wrote on Facebook, “To Allah we belong and to him is our eventual return. ALLAHU AKBAR.”
