Muslim sues email accusers

Author: JT Smith

AustralianIT: "Jafar Khan and his nephew Ishrad Khan said business at their Mobil service station fell by about a third as rumours spread that they had a bin Laden poster hanging on the wall.

Both men are of Indian heritage. Ishrad Khan, 26, was born in Chicago, while his uncle emigrated from India two decades ago.

They are suing a local university, its public relations officer and two as-yet-unidentified people for allegedly spreading rumours, by email and verbally, about the bin Laden poster.

"There's no poster. I have five American flags up," Ishrad Khan told the Chicago Tribune."
