Boston Imam Abdullah Faaruuq delivered a Friday sermon at the Islamic Society of Boston, in Cambridge Massachusetts, on March 18, 2022, in which he said that America was a "terrible place." He said that women in America do not "have the sense" to cover themselves like women in Sudan, Afghanistan, Egypt, Morocco, Pakistan or India. Faaruuq also said that America is a land where "disobedience to Almighty God is the norm" and gave the examples of gay marriage and transgenderism, commenting: "You can chop it off, put it on. You could do whatever you want." Abdullah Faaruuq is the Imam of Mosque Praise Allah in Boston, and he has ties with convicted Pakistani-American terrorist Aafia Siddiqui. For more information about Faaruuq, see MEMRI TV Clips nos. 6832 and 6832.

Abdullah Faaruuq: "We are in America. We are not in Sudan. We are not in Afghanistan. We are not in places where women have the sense to cover themselves. We are not in Egypt, Morocco, Pakistan, India. We are in a land where disobedience to Almighty God is what is the norm. Disobedience is normal.

"Perversity is average — men can marry men, women can marry men... Oh yeah, that's true, women can marry men... That's good, Allah be praised. Women can marry women. This is a land in which anything is possible. If you don't like your gender, you can change it, you can chop it off, put it on. You could do anything you want. This is a terrible place."
