Radioactive radical: Body of San Bernardino jihadist bride unclaimed

( - The mysterious jihadi bride who helped her husband kill 14 and wound 22 in last week’s terror attack in San Bernardino could get the unceremonious – and un-Islamic - funeral she deserves, as no Muslim leaders want anything to do with her, has learned.

The bullet-riddled body of Tashfeen Malik is still at the San Bernardino County morgue, along with that of her husband, Syed Rizwan Farook. But while his remains are expected to soon be released to his family, community and mosque leaders are treating her corpse like a hot potato.

“No one wants to claim her and no one wants to do the funeral,” a well-placed source within the Muslim community told  “They are all waiting for someone else to be the one to take care of this part of it.”

Local political and religious leaders have been trying to get someone to agree to perform a burial for Malik in adherence with Islamic tradition, but so far no one wants to take on the controversial duties. Malik did not worship at local mosques and was not known in the Muslim community before she and her husband launched the massacre at Inland Regional Center, where his co-workers were holding a holiday party Dec. 2. The pair, who had a 6-month-old daughter, was killed hours later in a shootout with police.
