Islamic center leaders ask DA to drop charge against homeless man Flanked by clergy from a cross-section of Houston’s religious community, leaders of an Islamic religious center Friday asked prosecutors to drop the felony charge lodged against a homeless man accused of setting one of their buildings on fire. Lending support to the Muslim group were clergy from Jewish and Christian congregations. Prosecutors say Ferguson reportedly told an employee of a convenience store not far from the Islamic center that he hated Muslims. Ferguson was not accused of a hate crime, however, because of the severity of punishment in his existing felony charge. Fire erupted about 5:30 a.m. Feb. 13, gutting a 3,000-square-foot prefabricated metal building being modified for use as a cafeteria and recreation center. Shaukat Zakaria, vice chairman of the Interfaith Ministries board of directors, said Friday’s session was called to express solidarity with the Quba Islamic Institute. While Interfaith Ministries is not structured to actively solicit funds for rebuilding the burned structure, he said, it hopes to help the Islamic group connect with groups that may assist.
