New York, Aug 14 : A widely respected Bangladeshi imam and his assistant were shot dead in broad daylight by a lone gunman as they walked home after Saturday prayers in the Queen Ozone Park.

Imam Maulana Akonjee and his assistant Thara Uddin were dressed in traditional Muslim attire when the killer approached them from behind and shot them at point-blank range, a New York police officer was quoted as saying by the New York Daily News.

Akonjee, 55, was shot in the head and died on the spot, while Uddin, 65, was died in hospital four hours later, the report said.

Please change the assistant to something like friend. I know these 2 people very well, and they are amazing people. After every prayer, they come home together because they are neighbors. When I heard 2 people were shot, and one was the imam, I immediately knew the other man was Thara Uddin. May Allah grant him Jannah.

Also can you change the photo to the Imam and Thara's photo? Thara is equally as great as the imam, they are both beloved. You could do a half and half with some type of picture editor.

I have never met either of these two individuals, but I take comfort in the fact that they were at peace before the tragic incident. For Muslims, especially those who pray 5 times a day, each prayer is a recharge of energy and spirituality as you progress throughout the day. The fact that they were killed right after Zuhr prayer at least reminds us all that they were submissive to their Lord till their last breath. I pray their family can find the peace they deserve.

Please change the 'assistant' to friend, or something like that. I know these two men quite well, and they are amazing people. They always walk home together after prayer because they are neighbors.

Please update Maulama to Maulana. On news sites it's incorrectly being broadcasted with the 'm' and I also see it in the update here.
