Mohammad Abbasi, whose Facebook page says he is an adjunct professor at Rutgers University’s Newark campus, said in a Friday, February 7, 2020 sermon at the Darul Islah Mosque in Teaneck, New Jersey that the coronavirus is divine retribution for China’s incarceration of Uyghur Muslims in concentration camps and for the fact that the Chinese eat animals while they are still alive. He said that while boycotting Chinese products is a small step, Allah has taken a bigger step against the Chinese by bringing the coronavirus upon them, and he stated that the coronavirus is “the least they should suffer.” Abbasi added: “May Allah punish them for what they did to our Muslim brothers even more.” According to his Facebook page, Abbasi is from East Jerusalem. Rutgers University’s website lists him as an adjunct faculty member and doctoral student at the School of Public Affairs and Administration at the Newark campus. Abbasi’s sermon was posted on Darul Islah’s YouTube channel.
