An active member of the Lodi Muslim Mosque says he knows nothing about the organization that runs the four mosques targeted by federal authorities.
Lodi resident Taj Khan said he has been to several mosques in the Sacramento area and knows several Muslims there, but no one he knows ever mentioned the Alavi Foundation or the Qoba Foundation in the Sacramento suburb of Carmichael.
"I have never heard of that mosque before," Khan said.
The Lodi Muslim Mosque is not affiliated with the group the federal government is pursuing, Khan said. The Lodi mosque is locally owned and controlled, he said.
