AURORA, Colo. (AP) — The founder of the organization that built Colorado’s largest mosque is offering to bury suspected Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev in a Denver-area Muslim cemetery.

Sheikh Abu-Omar Almubarac said Monday he will pay for a traditional Muslim burial — no headstone, monument or casket — at a plot at a Muslim cemetery in Denver or Bennett.

Almubarac refused to say which one out of concern for “undue publicity.” He says he’ll bury Tsarnaev as long as his family can get the body to Denver.

Almubarac incorporated the Colorado Muslim Society in the late 1960s, which later built the mosque on Parker Road in Denver.

Tsarnaev’s uncle Ruslan Tsarni, of Montgomery Village, Md., has been unable to bury his nephew in Massachusetts because of protests.

Almubarac says only God can judge Tsarnaev.
