The Houston office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today (3/2/15) issued a community safety alert to Muslims after an apparent threat was posted recently on social media promoting a lecture at the Masjid Hamza Islamic center in southwest Houston. Mosque officials immediately reported the message to the Houston Police and the FBI.
Houston Police and FBI response: “YAWN”
“In this time of increased anti-Muslim sentiment and a spike in incidents targeting Islamic institutions nationwide, the Muslim community must take threats like these very seriously,” said CAIR-Houston Executive Director Mustafaa Carroll.
