A controversial congressman is to attend a Ramadan interfaith dinner at a local mosque so he could actually meet some of the constituents he had offended.

The Alabama Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations on Monday asked Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) to apologize for previously claiming that Muslims are killers.

CAIR, the nation’s largest Muslim advocacy group, says that’s simply not true.

“American Muslims are committed to upholding equal rights and protections for all as the law of the land as enshrined in the U.S. Constitution,” CAIR-Alabama Executive Director Khaula Hadeed said in a statement. 

Brooks made it clear in an interview with WAFF that he’s just fine accusing an entire religion of 1.6 billion people of being violent homophobes.

The controversial republican congressman didn’t mention whether he would accept the dinner invite.
