Family of imam championing 9/11 mosque got terror threats

New York, Oct. 4 (ANI): Daisy Khan, the wife of Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, who plans to build the Ground Zero mosque, says her family had sought help from New York police after receiving terrorizing telephone calls.

Speaking on Christiane Amanpour's "This Week," Daisy Khan said: "For the record, my life is under threat."

"Check with the Police Department. My husband's life is under threat. We do not walk around with bodyguards because we love this country," the New York Daily News quoted Daisy Khan, as saying.

New York's chief police spokesman confirmed the couple had received threatening calls and said an investigation is underway. (ANI)
