The man accused of fatally shooting an imam and his aide on a Queens street felt a “hatred” toward Muslims in the days after the Sept. 11 terror attacks, his brother said Monday.
“The only time we ever felt anything was 9/11,” Alvin Morel said. “We felt that same anger. We all had a hatred.”
Oscar Morel, 35, was charged Monday night with two counts of second-degree murder for Saturday’s broad-daylight slaying of Imam Maulama Akonjee, 55, and aide Thara Uddin, 64, in South Ozone Park.
Police have not yet speculated on a motive, but Morel’s brother insisted that his anger at Muslims over 9/11 was only “temporary” and he now “definitely has no hate for the Muslims.”
