NJ mosque uses NYPD surveillance in ad campaign

NJ mosque uses NYPD surveillance to emphasize in an ad campaign that it has nothing to hide By The Associated Press

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) ' The leader of a New Jersey mosque that was listed in a secret NYPD surveillance report is using the incident to try and recruit new members.

Imam Mustafa El-Amin of Masjid Ibrahim in Newark ran an ad Thursday in The Star-Ledger newspaper urging people to read the Quran.

Under a bold-letter headline that reads: "NYPD Surveillance of Muslim Community," the ad says there's no need for the NYPD or any other agency to conduct secret surveillance of the mosque, because: "We have nothing to hide. Our doors are open."

El-Amin was one of several Muslim leaders who met recently with New Jersey's attorney general to demand a formal investigation.

The Associated Press has reported for months that the NYPD conducted surveillance on Muslims in New York and New Jersey.
