Muslim group distributing Quran over Carson flap
by Mark Hensch
One of the nation's largest advocacy groups for Muslims is handing out Islam's sacred text following GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson's controversial remarks on the faith.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) announced on Monday that it is distributing Islam's holiest scripture in a "Share the Quran" campaign meant to educate Americans about the religion.
"CAIR's research shows a direct correlation between increasing knowledge of Islam and decreasing anti-Muslim prejudice," said CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad during a press conference revealing the initiative in Washington, D.C.
