"Dr. Khan was born on March 31, 1939, in Madras, India. He immigrated to Boulder, Colorado, in 1966 to complete his masters and doctorate in solid state physics. He married Malika Begum, also of Madras, India in 1968 and in 1969 they had their first son, Suhail Khan. As a student, Dr. Khan helped establish the Muslim Students Association (MSA) which subsequently became the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). He was the Vice President of MSA, the West Zone Representative, and served on the Majilis aShura for ISNA.
After one year in Denver, Dr. Khan and his family moved to southern California in 1975 to accept a position in electrical engineering with Rockwell International. There, Dr. Khan was one of the founders of the Islamic Society of Orange County (ISOC) which eventually included and Islamic center, mosque, and elementary school. He served as the President of the ISOC before moving to San Jose, California in 1980 to accept a position with Fairchild Semiconductor.
In San Jose, Dr. Khan worked to establish the Muslim Community Association (MCA). The MCA with his leadership, has established two mosques, an Islamic Center, and the Granada Islamic (Elementary) School (GIS). He served as the Chairman of MCA and as a member of its Board of Trustees.
In addition, Dr. Khan helped establish American Muslims for Global Peace and Justice, an organization dedicated to aid in humanitarian efforts in Iraq and, most recently, in Kosovo."
"The Muslim Student Association of the U.S. and Canada was established in 1963, one year after the Muslim World League [MWL] with which it had close links."
"The MWL was established by the Saudi regime and that its cadres included numerous Islamist "revolutionaries" from the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood and from Pakistan."
"Its numerous local chapters would make available at every Friday prayer large stacks of the [MWL]'s publications, in both English and Arabic Although the MSA progressively diversified its connections with Arab states, official approval of Wahhabism remained strong."
"He calls attention to MSA's role in the creation of the Islamic Society of North America, or ISNA, which is best described as a branch of the Saudi religious militia operating to impose Wahhabi conformity on all of American Islam.
In addition, the MSA has strong ties with the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY), established in 1972 and directed from the Saudi capital, Riyadh. WAMY's U.S. offices in Northern Virginia have been a central target of the federal investigation of terrorist funding and money laundering by Islamist groups following the horrors of September 11th."
And that very same 'Saudi religious militia' are the enforcers of the Wahhabi creed which is a threat to the Saudi 'royal family' - which is facing the same potential threat as has recently been faced by Tunisia, Libya, Egypt and currently Syria, with Jordan already being threatened. There are some surprises in store, imo.
