Islamic Extremism at Northeastern University
Based on several months of research, this section describes a culture of extremism residing at Northeastern’s officially sanctioned and financially supported Muslim student group, the Islamic Society of Northeastern University (ISNU). The campus group has received thousands of dollars in funding from Boston’s Roxbury mega-mosque run by the Muslim American Society (MAS), a group federal authorities describe as an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. The ISNU is headed by the university’s Muslim chaplain, Abdullah Faaruuq, who is closely associated with the Roxbury mosque. Two Muslim students who attended Northeastern and who had ties to the Roxbury mosque have been charged with terror plots. Two other convicted terrorists from Boston are being actively supported by Faaruuq and Northeastern’s Muslim students.
