An Islamic terrorist is suing the federal prison system for allegedly violating his religious freedom. The trial came to a close Tuesday in Denver, Colorado with a ruling expected to be issued in the coming days.
Ahmed Ajaj is effectively serving a life sentence for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing that killed six people and injured a thousand others.
“A number of innocent people lost their lives. Hundreds were injured and thousands were struck with fear in their hearts when an explosion rocked the basement of the World Trade Center. To their families, you’re in the thoughts and prayers of my family.” — former President Bill Clinton
Reports show Ajaj attended terrorist training camps in both Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia to learn bomb making before coming to the U.S. as an asylum seeker.
He is now accusing a super-max prison in Colorado of failing to meet his long list of dietary and religious demands.
Court records show the man snubbed vegetarian and kosher options, instead insisting all animals be fed, raised and slaughtered in accordance with Islamic law. Authorities said it is almost impossible to find a vendor who meets all his criteria.
Ajaj is also complaining that the Imam assigned to him does not share his exact views, because he is of a different denomination of Islam.
While it remains unclear how much money the man is seeking, he asked to be awarded $130,000 back in 2014 as compensation for dietary issues related to Ramadan — the Islamic holy month of fasting. This latest lawsuit was filed a year later in 2015.
Ajaj has since been moved to a prison in Indiana, where authorities were able to get in contact with a supplier to begin serving meals that Ajaj finds “acceptable.”
