• Oklahoma Muslims Voice Concern over Congressional Hearings

    Oklahoma Muslims have anticipated with anxiety the process and consequences of Congressman Peter King’s Hearings on the radicalization of American Muslims. Concerns center around Rep. King’s well-known bias against Muslims and the misguided premise that American mosques  would condone threats to our fellow citizens and communities.

    Spokesperson for the Islamic Council of Oklahoma, Sheryl Siddiqui said, “Without equivocation, Oklahoma mosques condemn terrorism and violence against innocent people. The leaders of Oklahoma mosques have worked cooperatively with law enforcement for years and would not hesitate to report to officials any threats to our communities. We work to minimize marginalization and alienation of individuals and sectors of our communities through information sharing and civic and interfaith initiatives.”
