Imam reacts to attendees of his Mosque who say he’s spreading paranoia.
Omar Inshanally, who is one of the leading imams in greater Houston, has been accused of preaching warnings against a "global population reduction plan" through the tainting of the worlds water supply. Those who reported him were members of his own mosque though, Inshanally says those allegations are incorrect and says he was just discussing ideas offered by others.
"Chemicals in the water -- there are experts pointing out that these have effects on the mind and on the body," says Omar.
Sheikh Omar thinks that such a discussion should not be considered radical in a country that has a history of freedom of speech.
"I think they should respect that we are living in the United States where this is freedom of expression."
Pamela Geller a national commentator and blogger on Jihadism meanwhile is grateful that the Imam was outed.
"It's encouraging that the younger Muslims in this particular Mosque were concerned that this Imam might've been going off the rails," says Geller.
It's important to note that Inshanally has a history of coaching Muslim youth and advising them against Islamic extremism.
