CAIR-AZ: Muslims Rally Behind Banished Doctor

Leaders of four groups held a news conference at a Tempe mosque to defend Dr. Nadeem Hassan, who was denied re-entry to the country last week after traveling to Saudi Arabia for hajj, a Muslim pilgrimage.

The Arizona office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations requested meetings with the congressmen, said Asim Ameer, a member of the group’s state board of directors.

“We just want to be in a position where we can get some attention from our elected representatives,” Ameer said.

While the group’s requests have not been turned down, it has yet to be granted a meeting time with any of the legislators, he said.

“We have followed their process to the letter, and we’re being stonewalled,” Ameer said.
