CAIR Questions Feds’ Silence After Oklahoma Business Joins ‘Muslim-Free’ Movement

muslim free business gun shop(WASHINGTON, D.C., 8/13/2015) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today said that an Oklahoma survival equipment store has joined the growing number of businesses nationwide that have declared themselves “Muslim-free.”

CAIR also questioned why, despite repeated requests for action, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has remained silent on the “clearly illegal” religious ban, which the Washington-based group compared to “whites only” businesses excluding African-Americans prior to the Civil Rights Movement.

The Save Yourself Survival and Tactical Gear store in Oktaha, Okla., has a sign in its window stating it is a “Muslim free establishment.” The sign also states, “We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone,” which is the same language used by businesses that refused to serve African-American customers in the 1950s.
