NY1 VIDEO: On the same day he was supposed to be the New York City Fire Department's new Muslim chaplain, Imam Intikab Habib offered his resignation instead, following controversial comments he made about the September 11th terror attacks. NY1's Cindi Avila interviewed the imam on September 30, 2005 and filed this report.

NY1 FOLLOW-UP: The FDNY has not had a Muslim chaplain since.
