Muslims to join March on Washington 50th-anniversary event
by Jessica Chasmar
The Council on American-Islamic Relations and other Muslims groups will be joining the March on Washington 50th-anniversary event on Wednesday morning.
CAIR, America's largest Muslim advocacy group, will be joined by the D.C. Muslim Caucus, Islamic Relief USA and the Muslim American Citizens Coalition and Public Affairs Council, a press release obtained by The Washington Times said.
"Islamophobia … is just the latest manifestation of the same intolerance faced by Dr. King and other civil rights leaders of his time," CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad said in a statement. "Like other forms of intolerance, Islamophobia is a threat to our nation's values and to the social tapestry that continues to draw people to our shores from every nation on earth."
