NASABA and SABAs Across the US Condemn Congressional Hearings Singling out Muslim-Americans

March 16, 2011

NASABA recently sent a letter to Rep. Peter King (R-NY) expressing its concern over held by his Committee on Homeland Security regarding the radicalization of Muslim-Americans. NASABA President Annapoorni Sankaran wrote that the “Committee’s actions could endanger the safety of peace-loving Americans, chill the cooperation of Muslim-Americans with law enforcement to prevent acts of terror and feed into” the narrative offered by radicals that the United States is engaged in a war against Islam.

NASABA adds its voice to a growing chorus of criticism over the hearings from the Asian-American community. Fifteen SABAs joined in NASABA’s expression of concern.

A full copy of the letter is embeded below.
