Guiora Interviewed by ABC News on American Taliban John Walker Lindh’s Protest of Prison Prayer Restrictions

Amos Guiora, Professor of Law at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, was interviewed on August 27 by ABC News for a story about a court challenge advanced by John Walker Lindh, the so-called American Taliban. Lindh, an American who was captured in Afghanistan in 2001, is serving 20 years in an Indiana prison for supplying services to the  Taliban.  He is suing for the right to pray five times daily with his fellow Islamic inmates. 

 Guiora told ABC that daily group prayers are probably not a cause of concern: “I don’t think it raises security concerns, but if it goes beyond the text of the prayer than I can understand how it could be seen as a security question.”
