Upcoming CAIR report shows rise of Islamophobia

 

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the United States’ largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, on Monday, April 23, will release a report showing “concrete evidence” that the Muslim Ban resulted in increased anti-Muslim discrimination and violence nationwide in the past year.  CAIR’s 2018 civil rights report will outline hundreds of anti-Muslim bias incidents in 2017 and indicate how many were related to the unconstitutional “Muslim Ban” executive orders.   The new report, titled “Targeted,” will also document the increase in anti-Muslim bias incidents and hate crimes in 2017 over the previous year.  “This administration’s targeting of the American Muslim community and of other minority communities is very clear and should shock the conscience of all Americans,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad.   He said the anti-Muslim hate incidents documented in CAIR’s report are an indictment of the unconstitutional policies.   Community members are being urged to report any bias incidents to police and to CAIR's Civil Rights Department.   CAIR launched an app to share critical “know your rights” information and to simplify the process to report hate crimes and bias incidents.
