Hafiz Saeeds brothers fate hangs in the balance

Hafiz Saeeds brother, Imam Muhammad Masood, and his family will have to wait for five more months before they learn whether they are to be deported from the United States or allowed to stay.

Washington, May 11 : Hafiz Saeed's brother, Imam Muhammad Masood, and his family will have to wait for five more months before they learn whether they are to be deported from the United States or allowed to stay.

In Boston, Immigration Court judge Robin Feder has scheduled an Oct 11 deportation hearing for the former Sharon Islamic centre imam, his wife and their five adult children.

Their attorney, William Joyce of Duxbury, asked for a July hearing, but October 11 was the earliest date available for the full day hearing that government attorney Douglas Ligor had requested, reports the Daily Times.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials picked up the imam, his son Hassan and a Chelmsford imam in November 2006 as part of a multi-state sweep.

Imam Masood had been at the Islamic Centre's Sharon mosque since 1998. He applied for a Green Card in 2001. The status of his wife and five of their eight children hinges on the outcome of his case. The imam's three youngest children are American-born and thus not affected.

The newspaper reported that Imam Masood is charged with visa violations that date back to July 1991. The government claims that he never left the U.S. as he was required to do in a student visa programme in which he studied economics at Boston University from 1988 to 1991. The government's evidence includes a 1992 traffic ticket in Imam Masood's name.

Since his troubles began, members of the congregation and money from the Boston-area Muslim community have supported Masood.

His brother, Hafiz Saeed, is the founder of a banned terrorist group that still holds widespread sympathy in Pakistan.

Masood claims that he has not spoken to Hafiz for a long time.
