Muslim-Americans report receiving anonymous robocalls asking for religious affiliation: 'Scared the s--t out of me'
by Laura Bult
Several Muslim-Americans received mysterious robocalls asking them whether they identify as a follower of Islam, some of whom are citing the spectre of a proposed Muslim registry as cause for alarm over the confounding calls.
The Council on Islamic-American Relations, the country's largest civil rights and advocacy group for Muslim-Americans, started flagging social media posts from users who reported receiving the calls this week.
The robocall appear to have gone out in the past two days asking Muslim-Americans their religious affiliation and assuring them the call would "be kept strictly anonymous and confidential," according to a Facebook post by Shamsiya Shervani.
