In a brief statement issued today, the Ahlulbayt Islamic Mission said as follows:
AIM calls for a clear and decisive response to the rise of fascism in the United States. We have very serious concerns about the influence of right wing extremism and believe it is imperative that everyone makes a clear stand against discrimination, racism and religious intolerance. The ban on some Muslim countries on the basis of their faith is a clear violation of human rights which should be challenged. Statistics show that Islamophobia is rising heavily in the West and the irresponsible remarks and actions of some right wing politicians is placing the lives of Muslims at risk.
We have recently heard of the burning down of a mosque and in another incident a shooting which took the lives of 5 Muslim worshipers. These crimes are condemned regardless of the perpetrators and are a worrying sign of things to come.
