Bashir Moghul--who, it must be stated, is not as bad as slumlord Mahmood Khan, but if a murder victim ever turned up in the garage of one of Bashir's properties, well, then it would then be a tie ball game....
Bashir Moghul--who once actually had the audacity to say, at a Hawthorne Housing Committee Meeting, "I come to this Committee with...

THE ONE AND ONLY SLUMLORD BASHIR MOGHUL has retained legal counsel.
Ferdinand Peters--who has represented other North Minneapolis clients far more sympathetic than Bashir Moghul--contacted Johnny Northside Dot Com to state he was Moghul's attorney, and would be trying to help "clean up the mess" with all the Moghul properties. Peters' tone was friendly and conciliatory, which is much appreciated.
In my opinion, Moghul clearly needs legal counsel and Peters has a reputation as both a skilled lawyer and a profoundly decent human being, somebody who provides necessary legal advocacy but doesn't specialize in bad, unsympathetic clients whose one redeeming feature is an abundance of funds to pay their lawyers.
I would prefer to see Moghul's slummy properties fall into the hands of starry-eyed first time home owners instead of yet another round of dubious real estate investors whose only distinction from Bashir Moghul would be fresh lines of credit. But I'm not holding my breath to see that happen, nor is this blog planning to let up on Bashir Moghul any time soon. However, when Bashir makes good moves and progress, I hope to learn of that and report it fairly and squarely.
