A Muslim professor at Indiana State University, in Terre Haute, Indiana, faked receiving threatening emails and being attacked on campus, according to police.
The assistant professor of aviation technology has been arrested for having creating fake anti-Muslim threats in March, after he complained about receiving a series of emails containing anti-Muslim messages and threats.
On March 8, Hussain claimed to have received threatening emails containing anti-Muslim threats, and on March 24, Hussain claimed that he was attacked from behind while entering his campus office.
But according to local police, the professor fabricated all of the incidents.
“Based upon the investigation, it is our belief that Hussain was trying to gain sympathy by becoming a victim of anti-Muslim threats which he had created himself,”..
