'Muslim Mapping' report urges leaders to declare that NYPD 'informants are not tolerated'
by Azi Paybarah
Some activists opposed to the New York Police Department's reported program of monitoring Muslim businesses, schools and houses of worship have a message for imams and community leaders.
"Announce to your congregations or membership that informants are not tolerated in your communities," and make a "mosque or organization's leadership available to address members' concerns about informants and surveillance."
The report, "Mapping Muslims: NYPD Spying and its Impact on American Muslims," was released this morning outside NYPD headquarters by the Muslim American Civil Liberties Coalition, the Creating Law Enforcement Accountability & Responsibility project, and the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund.
