ElBayly, along with Mahmood Qazi, the Islamic Center of Johnstown's founder and past president, pressed university officials to block Ali from speaking.
"I don't want her to poison anyone's mind," Qazi said.

The Johnstown Tribune Democrat ^ | June 07, 2006 | MAHMOOD A. QAZI
Mahmood A. Qazi is founder and past president of the Islamic Center of Johnstown, Paint Borough.A native of Pakistan, he is retired from Concurrent Technologies Corp.He is an author and Muslim chaplain under contract with the state Department of Correctons.
I assure you that a response to the many questions Dr. Qazi posed in this article is in the works.
Why blame Islam, Mahmood?Because Islam is a fairy tale written for terrorists.It's founder was a pedophile who took a six-year-old girl for a wife and admittedly claimed to have consummated the marriage while she was nine.He also was a cowardly son-of-a-street-whore, who ran from every battle he could not be guaranteed of winning.He was like the gnats that gather around a dog's penis in the heat of July, currying favor from his female employer and stealing her wealth in marriage.
