Ahmad Saleem, a Muslim community activist, has been arrested during a sting targeting people who attempted to lure underaged girls online for sex
When the Muslim activist — who is also the founder of the Saleem Academy — arrived at a Clermont-area home, he thought that he was coming to meet a 12-year-old girl. Instead he was met by detectives. The website for Saleem Academy now says, “CLOSED. MAY GOD BLESS YOU, GUIDE YOU, AND ILLUMINATE THE RIGHT PATH FOR YOU, AND KEEP YOU FIRM ON IT. KEEP ME IN YOUR PRAYERS.” Saleem was just one of 101 people arrested in an undercover two-week, cyber-crime prostitution and child-sex sting in the Lake and Polk county area. “Central Florida is now a safer place today because of the efforts of our deputies,” Lake County Sheriff Gary Borders said. The girl that Saleem was coming to see was really one of the undercover detectives who helped to crack down on people looking for sex with minors ages 10 to 14.
