Iftar Reception for First FBI Woman Director in LA

Diedra Fike made history when she became the first woman to serve as Director of FBI in the Los Angeles field office. The task was daunting: she had to supervise the work of thousands of agents under her command.
Mahomed Khan, Director of Interfaith and Outreach, King Fahad Mosque, hosted an iftar reception in her honor on Thursday, June22, to thank her for her services to the country and community.
Khan recalled that many years ago,the FBI uncovered a plot to blow up the King Fahad Mosque. Last year,the Bureau uncovered another plot to blow up a mosque in Michigan. “We are grateful to have agents who put their life on the line to protect us all,” said Mahomed Khan.
Khan expressed his profound appreciation for the FBI’s zeal and commitment to guarantee the constitutional right of freedom of religion for all citizens. “As a token of appreciation we gave flowers to our director today,”he said. Diedra Fike met with community leaders, families and children present in the mosque that day. To the delight of many youngsters in the gathering, she appeared to be a great role model, especially forMuslim girls: her success as an FBI director demonstrates that you can succeed in any career you wish to adopt if you have the will and zest to succeed. Being a woman can be an asset if you have the aptitude and commitment to fulfill the role you choose for yourself.
Fike helped serve food to over 600 Muslims breaking fast.
Community-partnership with law enforcement has been gaining momentum over the years. “Our community looks forward to visits by law enforcement,” said Mahomed Khan.
Director Fike and special agent Alonzo Hill attended the iftar reception on Thursday, 22 June. They were followed by Community Outreach Specialist Dianne Gonzalez the next day.
