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.” The Colorado cleric said 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.

Parents of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, the Tsarnaev brothers, want to bury their son in Dagestan, and have started raising funds for the transportation of his body to Russia.
This was reported by RIA Novosti, citing the Father of the two brothers - Anzor Tsarnaev.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a shootout with police on April 19. In Boston, dozens of people have protested against his burial in the United States.
In addition, the authorities of three states - Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Jersey, have refused to allow the terrorist to be buried in their cemeteries.
According to local media reports, the American public is suggesting several solutions to the problem. In addition to sending in the body to Russia, there are suggestions to bury the body at sea, as was the case with bin Laden in 2011, or to have it cremated.
