Muslim group denied application to march again in Tulsa's Veterans Day Parade
Controversy that erupted over a Muslim float in last year's Veterans Day Parade will not be repeated this year, the director of Friday's downtown parade said Monday.
An application from the Council on American-Islamic Relations-Oklahoma to be in the parade was turned down.
"Nothing I have seen or heard indicates we will have any controversy," said Steve Porter, president of the newly formed Greater Tulsa Veterans Organizations Association.
Last year, when CAIR applied for and received a permit to have a float in the parade, the Tulsa Veterans Day Parade Association received numerous calls of protest but did not rescind the permit, saying that CAIR had a constitutional right to participate.
