Top Islamic Imam Shot In The Back Of The Head In Queens

The leader of a mosque in Queens and his associate were shot and killed Saturday afternoon while strolling home from their place of worship.

Each was shot in the head at point-blank range in what local Muslim leaders area calling a hate crime.

Imam Maulama Akonjee, 55, and his assistant imam, 64-year-old Thara Uddin, were rushed to a local hospital, but died from their gunshot wounds.

Investigators hadn’t established a motive for the shootings, said NYPD Deputy Inspector Hank Sautner during a news conference.
