Underwear Bomber Demands His Release Because Koran Says It’s OK to Kill Infidels
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the underwear bomber who tried to blow up a Detroit-bound jet on Christmas Day, is arguing for his release from prison because it’s OK to kill infidels according to the Koran.
The so-called underwear bomber charged with trying to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner is arguing for his prison release, claiming wrongful imprisonment by the American government.
In a handwritten court document filed today, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 24, asked the court to release him from prison, arguing that “all Muslims should only be ruled by the law of the Quran.”
“The defendant is being unjustly detained in the Unites States of American, and subjected to the Rule of Man,” wrote Abdulmutallab, adding he should “only be judged and ruled by the law of the Quran.”
In a separate, handwritten court filing, the Nigerian national also wrote that “excessive force” was used to restrain him on Wednesday while he was in his closed cell, during the “holy month of Ramadan.” He wrote that between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m., “in defense of Muhammad,” he assaulted several officers from his cell, and that as a result, “excessive force” was used to restrain him.
