According to reports, Mohammad came to the United States in 1991 from Pakistan and has only been a U.S. Citizen for four years.
Mohammad is the publisher of the “Asian Times,” a monthly magazine focused on South Asians living in the United States.
Mohammad is the founder of American Muslim Progressive Caucus. According to a flyer that Mohammad posted to Facebook, AMPC’s mission and vision are as follows:
BUILDING A PROGRESSIVE MUSLIM COMMUNITY
Every American Muslim must register to vote and engage with American Political System to promote equality and Justice. Elect diverse candidates for the offices who respect all communities.
We envision of future where Islam is understood as a source of dignity, justice, compassion and love for all humanity and the word.
A journalist/photographer for Asian Times took to Facebook to write about bringing together people from Bangladesh, India and Pakistan. He wrote:
The concept of bringing the people of three countries together is the vision of Imtiaz Ahmad Mohammad, who is CEO and Publisher of ASIANTIMES USA and Chairman Outreach and Membership Committee of American Muslim Democratic Caucus of Florida.The origin of the SOUTH ASIAN FESTIVALS is with the intention of bringing the people of the three countries under the AMDC so that we can participate in the politics of the country we live…
Right. In other words, “so that we can take over the U.S. Government.”
The journalist/photographer goes on to write an oath, which I doubt he means any of. Then he wrote:
It is time to understand where we stand today, who represents us, who is fighting for us in the Congress, why our own Representatives are not there.We need to unite and start participating in the politics from the grassroots level.By 2020 we will be united and we will have our representatives nominated to stand for the various positions.Our objectives are different from other Cultural and Trade Association and no one should feel to be left out, we are always ready to listen and make changes and implement for the betterment of the Community.
On an event page on Facebook, several photos were posted from a celebration that Mohammad attended. The room the celebration was held in was decorated in green and white along with several Pakistan flags. I did not see even one American Flag, though.
According to sun-sentinel.com, when asked about why he is running for office, Mohammad stated, “We (muslims) do not have a presence in the political arena. My goal in running is to give people a wake-up call that we can run for office. I felt so blessed when I saw my name on the ballot.” Mohammad also stated that he is running to “represent the 186,000 Muslim registered voters in the state.” What about the other voters, Mohammad? If elected, aren’t you suppose to represent everyone, not just the muslim voters?
According to a Voter Guide, Mohammad is “in support of universal background checks and a ban on assault-style, semi-automatic weapons, bump stocks, and high capacity magazines for civilian use.” Mohammad has also stated that he wants to repeal Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law.
Mohammad has attended events with CAIR-Fl.
Mohammad spoke at a fundraiser for Asif Mahmood. Mahmood is a longtime Clinton contributor. Asif Mahmood has held fundraisers at his house for Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton herself and Huma Abedin attended the fundraisers. Asif Mahmood and John Podesta have emailed each other, according to wikileaks. Asif Mahmood was a candidate for Lieutenant Governor in Ca. before dropping out and running for Insurance Commissioner. Thankfully, he lost the primary election on June 5th, 2018.
Mohammad has been at events and taken photos with Linda Sarsour, Keith Ellison, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel and Debbie wasserman Schultz. He looks pretty chummy with all of them. Maybe close buddies?
Mohammad gave a speech at a Mosque with Nezar Hamze in attendance. Hamze is a Broward County Deputy Sheriff and a muslim convert. Hamze has gave weapon training session at a Fl. mosque and encouraged Muslims to buy firearms.
If Mohammad’s connections aren’t enough to tell you he’s bad news, then you need to #WakeUp!
Mohammad will face Incumbent Jared Evan Moskowitz in the Primary Election on Aug. 28th, 2018. There are no republicans running for this seat.
UPDATE: Imtiaz Ahmad Mohammad was defeated in the primary election.
