Funeral services for Abdul Razak Ali Artan, the Ohio State student who carried out Monday’s attack on campus, were held Thursday afternoon. Artan was shot multiple times by a police officer moments after the attack began.

Over 100 people attended Artan’s funeral at the Ibnu Taymiyah mosque on the city’s North Side. As is traditional, Artan’s body was washed before it was brought into the prayer hall, where community members prayed over him.

Due to the ongoing investigation, Artan’s family did not speak with the media, but Ahmed Ahmed, the mosque’s director, spoke with Artan’s mother on Wednesday.

“I believed my son would die one day, but I was not expecting him to die this soon,” Artan’s mother reportedly told Ahmed. “God gave him to me and he took [him] away.”

Ahmed says she was shocked to learn her son, a straight-A student and recent Columbus State Community College graduate, had carried out the attack. She says that morning, Artan had just taken his younger siblings to school.

Artan’s mother, he says, doesn’t think her son is guilty.

“She’s waiting for the investigation to conclude to see what they come up with, but she still believes that her son is innocent,” Ahmed said.

No protestors or police were present at the service.


Just Muslims. Burying a dead Muslim terrorist.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
