NYPD Commissioner to Meet with Muslim Leaders

The New York Police Department’s commissioner plans to meet with Muslim leaders amid criticism of police monitoring of Muslims after the Sept. 11 attacks.

Sheik Moussa Drammeh says he received a phone call asking him to meet with Commissioner Raymond Kelly on Tuesday. The founder of the Islamic Leadership School in the Bronx says he’s not sure what the meeting is about.

Several other Muslim leaders were invited. It’s unclear how many will attend.

The police department hasn’t commented on the meeting.

The NYPD has been criticized by many Muslim groups and politicians after The Associated Press reported the department secretly monitored Muslims across the Northeast in the years since Muslim extremists destroyed the World Trade Center.

Kelly has said he’s doing everything within the law to protect the city from another attack.
