MN Muslims Protest Senate Bill, Claim Discrimination
by Susie Jones
The Minnesota Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, along with interfaith leaders, are standing together against a Senate bill they say discriminates against them.
Munazza Humayun, civil rights coordinator for CAIR, says the new "anti-Sharia" bill threatens religious freedom. She says it was written using a template provided by an anti-Islam extremist.
"We are here today to send a clear message that intolerance and a restriction on religious freedom is not a Minnesota value." Humayun said.
