Authorities investigating blast at Minnesota mosque

Authorities investigating blast at Minnesota mosque

St. PaulMinnesota's governor called the bombing of a mosque outside Minneapolis the previous day "an act of terrorism" during a visit to the site on Sunday. No one was injured in the attack, but the office was badly damaged.

"What a bad, dastardly, cowardly act was committed", Minneapolis Star-Tribune quoted Dayton as saying.

The Muslim American Society of Minnesota is now offering a $10,000 reward for anyone that can provide information that would lead to the arrest and conviction of the bomber.

Two days after a mosque in Minnesota was bombed, officials for the religious center are wondering why Donald Trump has yet to utter a single syllable about the attack.

"This could have been very big and very damaging", said Asad Zaman with the Muslim American Society of Minnesota.

The blast went off during morning prayers around 5:00 a.m., shocking those gathered with plumes of smoke coming from a window near the Imam's office.

Attack on Rahul Gandhi in Gujarat was pre planned: Congress
Many people in Manipur are apprehensive that the State may be disintegrated at the influence of RSS-BJP, Subhashchandra said. He is the man who threw the stone at Rahul Gandhi . "This is their, and PM Modi's, way of politics", he said.

But he didn't comment on a Minnesota mosque bombing that occurred over the weekend.

Omar said if he could tell the bomber one thing, he would tell him or her to, "Come pray with us, and come and share and we can tell you who we are".

"He really needs to speak out against these type of things, because those who support him take his silence as tacit support", Ibrahim Hooper, the national communications director for the Council on American Islamic Relations told Politico.

These forces have been further emboldened by Trump's actions since January, including his implementation of the anti-Muslim travel ban, which limits travel from six predominantly Muslim countries, as well as the fascistic forces he has surrounded himself with in the White House.

The local chapter's civil rights director, Amir Malik, said that "if a bias motive is proven, this attack would represent another in a long list of hate incidents targeting Islamic institutions nationwide in recent months".

Special Agent in Charge Rick Thornton says in a Monday news release that he can't answer certain questions due to the ongoing investigation. Mr. Ellison said Mr. Gorka is "trying with no evidence whatsoever to distract the public's attention from the real story: that a group of Americans who were peacefully worshipping were the target of a terrorist act". "I jumped up and came out here to make sure ... no one was sitting in our living room".
