by Carla Hinton
A state legislator received a standing ovation at a Ramadan gathering designed to promote interaction between Oklahoma Muslims and their elected leaders.
State Sen. Anastasia Pittman, D-Oklahoma City, brought the crowd of about 150 people to its feet with her passionate speech urging Muslims to get more involved in the political process.
Her keynote presentation was made at the second annual iftar dinner hosted on June 23 by the Council on American Islamic Relations-Oklahoma City chapter.
