Texas synagogue attack: Hostage-taker’s Pakistan link being probed – The Economic Times Video


The British Muslim man shot dead after taking worshippers hostage in a Texas synagogue at gunpoint ranted about wishing he had died in the 9/11 attacks. As the police in the US and the UK scramble to find if he was part of a wider terror cell, it has emerged that Malik Faisal Akram, 44, from Blackburn, Lancashire, was branded a ‘menace’ for expressing his desire to be onboard one of the planes that destroyed the World Trade Centre in 2001. Akram’s links to Pakistan are also being probed, having been a regular visitor to the country where his father was born. He was reportedly a supporter of the conservative Tablighi Jamaat group, set up to ‘purify’ Islam.
