Imam Sohail Chaudhry serves Muslims at the Islamic Center of East Lansing.

Lansing area Muslims are being led by a new Imam. Sohail Chaudhry comes to the Islamic Center of East Lansing from West Virginia.

Imam Chaudhry grew up in Pakistan. He and his wife have a two-year-old son, and what appealed to him about East Lansing was its Islamic school.  The Imam moved to Morgantown at the age of 17 to pursue a degree in computer engineering at West Virginia University.

Current State’s Scott Pohl speaks with Imam Chaudhry about his work in Morgantown and his early impressions of Michigan.
