Recently, Chairman King characterized hearings on violent extremism as focusing exclusively on the 'radicalization of the American Muslim community and homegrown terrorism.' It is inappropriate and unfair to single out a group of Americans, in this case Muslim Americans, for government scrutiny based on their faith. Such hearings orchestrated by Chairman King will inevitably examine activities protected as religious freedom, an affront to fundamental freedoms upon which our country was founded.
The Muslim Consultative Network and Religious Freedom USA ask for Urgent Action! Please urge him to address all forms of violence motivated by extremist beliefs and to do so in a full, fair, and objective way by signing this petition today!
