“It was a misunderstanding, one borne of ignorance,” said one police official.

Those items are barred under the mosque’s rules of worship – and the news touched off a few minutes of awkwardness as Brown patiently waited outside the mosque.

The mosque’s imam, Abdul Hafeez Muhammad, then greeted Brown and apologized, but reiterated the fact that he would not be allowed inside to attend the meeting, where other community leaders were in attendance, because of his gun and shield.

“He refused to comply with the demand. He wasn’t going to relinquish his weapon,” an NYPD spokeswoman said.



In Shi'a Islam, taqiya (تقیة taqiyyah/taqīyah) is a form of religious veil, or a legal dispensation whereby a believing individual can deny his faith or commit otherwise illegal or blasphemous acts, specially while they are in fear or at risk of significant persecution.
