CAIR Says Gov't Asked Muslim Americans How Often They Prayed
by Edwin Mora
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has filed a lawsuit against the U.S. government, saying, among other things, that authorities questioned Muslim Americans reentering the country from Canada about their personal habits of prayer.
"Upon information and belief, Defendants began implementing a policy or course of conduct under which Defendants ask Muslim American travelers attempting to re-enter the United States through the United States-Canada border at multiple international ports of entry a detailed list of questions about their religious beliefs and religious practices," says the complaint.
The complaint says one of these questions is: "How many times a day do you pray?"
