CAIR Worries Banks Are Closing Too Many Muslim Accounts Under Anti-Terror Laws
by Eric Owens
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wants American Muslims to participate in a survey about bank account closures because, the Muslim civil rights organization says, banks have closed the accounts of some Muslims with no explanation — and may be closing the accounts improperly.
"A disproportionate number of these closures" are "negatively impacting members of the American Muslim community," CAIR explained in a statement sent to The Daily Caller.
Several banks have abruptly closed accounts owned by Muslim Americans, CAIR says. Among the banks are Bank of America, Chase and Wells Fargo.
