The unmitigated gall one has to possess in order to do this.
Ahmed Ajaj, convicted for his involvement in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing that killed six people (one who was pregnant) and injured over 1,000 others, is suing the government.
Ajaj, a devout Muslim, claims that officials at a federal prison in Colorado (he has since been moved to Terre Haute, Indiana) failed to prepare his meals according to Islamic Law. The lawsuit also stated that an imam had not been provided during regularly scheduled faith-based classes.
A man involved in the first attack on the World Trade Center is pouting about his religious rights being violated.

Ajaj is serving a 114-year prison sentence for his role in the 1993 bombing, having been convicted alongside three other defendants who played a part in the attack.
Ajaj was convicted on ten counts, which included conspiracy, property destruction, and international travel as part of committing a crime.
He provided bomb-making instructions to Ramzi Yousef, the man who actually packed the Ryder van with explosives and detonated it that day.

“Throughout his incarceration, Mr. Ajaj has been subject to relentless discriminatory practices by Bureau of Prison staff because of his race and religion,” the lawsuit reads.
Ajaj is seeking punitive and compensatory damages, though any specific amounts have gone unmentioned. In a previous lawsuit, he demanded $130,000 in compensation for dietary issues related to Ramadan.
A judge is expected to rule on the lawsuit in the next few days.
Joe Connor, an author who lost his father and cousin to separate terror attacks, was livid over news of the lawsuit.
“This is a religious issue for him? We aren’t giving him his religious rights?” Connor facetiously asked. “What about the six people who were murdered that day and the unborn baby that was murdered that day? What about the 100,000 people they planned to kill?”
The original plot sought to take down both WTC towers.

Demanding special privileges while in prison seems to be a staple of terrorists. They feel entitled, even despite their heinous crimes.
The Fort Hood terrorist released a letter from death row demanding that he be granted citizenship with the Islamic State. British Jihadist Michael Adebolajo, one of two terrorists who brutally murdered British soldier Lee Rigby by hacking him to death in broad daylight, sued over injuries he sustained in prison.
Now Ajaj has the nerve to sue over his meals not meeting religious requirements? It’ll get worse, Ahmad. We’re pretty sure there won’t be any meals catered for you in Hell.
