Ahmad Saleem is the Orlando Regional Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). He attended the University of Central Florida, where he was President of the Muslim Students Association. He later became the MSA National Service Director before founding the Saleem Academy. Here's his description on the Saleem Academy's site (deleted following his arrest on pedophilia charges):
Ahmad Saleem is a passionate community organizer and educator based in the sunny city of Orlando, FL.Since he blames "Islamophobia" for his "identity crisis," perhaps he will blame "Islamophobia" for his arrest as well.
When he was in high school, he went through a lot of inner struggles, a big part of which were sparked due to a deep identity crisis that was partially sparked by the islamophobic climate in America post-911.
Through the grace of The Most Generous and through many patient years of soul-searching, Ahmad not only was pulled out of those dark days of his life, but also transformed and was trained and blossomed into a promising community leader, activist, and teacher.
Pakistani by origin, yet raised in America, he currently holds his Bachelors in Psychology, and has studied under scholars like Imam Tariq Rasheed, Sh. Abdullah Deeb, Sh. Ahmed Harara, Sh. Ibrahim Habash, Mufti Minhajuddin Ahmed, Mufti Ehzaz Ajmeri, Mufti Azeemuddin, Molana Noorudeen Ghauri, Molana Ihtiram, Sh Uthman Khan, & Qari Mohammed Fazl-ur-Rehman Ahsan Nadwi. He has partaken in Zaytuna, Almaghrib, and Bayyinah educational services as well as conducted his own seminars and teachings too. He looks up to Malcolm X and Shaykh Hamza Yusuf in the West and Salahudeen Ayubi and A’llamah Muhammad Iqbal in the East as role models.
He has dedicated his life to God and to empowering others to God through God, and for Saleem Academy that translates into him and his team empowering Muslim Youth across the globe. Please pray for his success and the success of all the community servants of God around the world.
Notice that CAIR officials are trying to distance themselves from Saleem by claiming that he is no longer Orlando Regional Coordinator. These officials apparently think that by taking down Saleem's page from their site, they can trick us into believing that Saleem "only worked there for a short time before abandoning his post." However, a little detective work reveals the truth.
But when the door opened, there were no children in sight. Instead, detectives quickly brought Saleem to the ground and arrested him. Saleem, founder of the Saleem Academy, an organization dedicated to empowering Muslim youths globally, was one of the 101 people arrested in an undercover cybercrime prostitution and child-sex sting by the Lake and Polk county sheriff's offices.
Lake County Sheriff Gary Borders and Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd spelled out details of the two-week sting, which started on May 18, at a Tavares news conference surrounded by large boards filled with suspects' mug shots. Seventy-nine people were busted in the prostitution operation and 22 in the child-sex sting, officials said.
"Central Florida is now a safer place today because of the efforts of our deputies," Borders said.
He said the operation — dubbed "L & P" for "Lake" and "Polk" — used chat rooms and online forums to identify people seeking illicit sex. The first phase targeted people looking to have sex with minors from 10 to 14. Among those arrested was Saleem, 22, who faces felony charges for traveling to seduce or solicit a child to commit a sex act.
A Polk County sheriff's detective posed as a girl online and talked with Saleem, who said he wanted to have sex with the girl and then traveled to Lake County for an expected meeting, authorities said.
Saleem was also the Orlando regional coordinator for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a nonprofit organization dedicated to challenging stereotypes of Islam and Muslims and defending civil liberties. The organization said he only worked there for a short time before abandoning his post. (Continue Reading.)
A simple Google search shows that Saleem is still listed in search engines as a CAIR representative:
Even worse, Google archived the site only three days ago:
Look who was listed only three days ago as CAIR's Orlando representative:
Since the sting began on May 18th, and Saleem was part of the "phase one" arrests, he had obviously already been arrested when he was still listed as a CAIR representative on May 31st.
Nice try, CAIR. But instead of lying in an effort to protect your reputation, perhaps you should focus on dealing with Islam's depraved teachings about non-Muslim girls. In fact, I'd like to see you even address Muhammad's teachings about Muslim girls:
