Pakistani Spy Arrested, Associate of US Muslim Brotherhood

August 8, 2011

The FBI has arrested and accused Syed Ghulam Nabi Fai, an American citizen, of spying for Pakistan.  The GMBDR reports that Fai is an activist for the cause of Pakistani Kashmir, as well as being associated with the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.

During his studies at Temple University, Dr. Fai was associated with Ismail Faruqi, one of the early leaders of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and who was instrumental in the idea for establishing the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), an important part of the  U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. Both the Muslim Student Association (MSA) and the International Federation of Student Organizations (IIFSO) were critical components of the  US and Global Muslim Brotherhood during the time Dr. Fai was active. According to a recent report on the first Gaza flotilla by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), the Union of the NGOs of the Islamic World is a key part of the Turkish Muslim Brotherhood network that was instrumental in developing and executing that flotilla. In addition, Dr. Fai has been a regular speaker at a number of conferences of the Islamic Society of North America, another part of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.

Also telling, is the immediate press release of support, by the American Muslim Taskforce on Civil Rights and Elections:

“Dr. Ghulam Nabi Fai, a respected community activist and leader, has a right to the presumption of innocence and the right to a competent legal defense, the cost of which will require community support.

“Equally important for us is to ensure that the cause of Kashmir finds a peaceful expression in the United States. All the constitutional protections afforded any American citizen must remain available to Kashmiri-Americans and to all those who support the Kashmiri right to self-determination.

“Let no one be deluded into thinking that the present restrictions on the Kashmiri American Council (KAC) will mean banning of advocacy on behalf of the long-suffering people of Kashmir.

“We urge President Obama to ensure that the recent pro-India shift in U.S. policy, clearly manifested in Secretary of State Clinton’s speech in India, will not be used by law enforcement agencies to stifle national debate about the future of Kashmir.”

As has been noted previous, the AMT is an alphabet soup of MB-associated groups in the U.S.
