A Muslim cop plans to sue the NYPD for $5 million after years of alleged discrimination over his religion — including being forced to pray in a dirty cell — and retribution for reporting cops cooking the books on crime stats, The Post has learned.
Umer Alam says in the notice of claim filed with the city Monday that retaliation had led to changed shifts and “highway therapy” — and that the discrimination went as far as forcing the Pakistani-American officer to pray in a feces-filled toilet last year.
Alam alleges while assigned to supervising inmates on Jan. 31, 2019, his supervisor cut his lunch break short after 20 minutes.
When he asked Lt. Micheal Urena if he could have 10 minutes to pray, the supervisor responded, “go inside the cell area and you can pray while you’re in there,” according to the claim.
Alam says others were “shocked of the statement” — and he then prayed in a cell, where the toilet was broken but had been recently used.
“Not only did he cut my lunch break short, he disrespected my religion,” Alam told The Post Tuesday. “I was mad, but I calmed myself down and continued to do my job.”
But five months later, the internal investigation came up unfounded after he claims his co-worker was told to keep his mouth shut, the officer claimed.
In another instance of alleged discrimination, Alam says his interview for a post at the World Trade Center in 2011 was abruptly ended after the inspector remarked “oh you are one of those people” after asking about his beard, according to the documents.
The officer, who joined the force in 2008, also claims cops in the 28th Precinct ignored a grand larceny and never even put the crime into the system.
After the victim, who had $900 stolen from his bank via debit card, asked Alam about the status of the case, the officer inquired only to find the report had not been filed, leading him to believe cops “purposefully ignored the Grand Larceny complaint to not take the statistic,” the notice alleges.
