CAIR-NY: NY MUSLIMS KEEP THE FAITH POST 9/11
Many Muslims in New York have been through a period of reflection since 11 September 2001, looking out at the wider US and wondering where they fit into it.
And they have been looking inwards, to work out what kind of Islam sits easily with their lives. . .
Omar Mohammedi of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in New York, a civil rights lawyer, said he was taking cases brought by Muslims who had been fired from their jobs.
He was also representing a child who had been bullied in school because his name was “Osama”.
Observers say there does seem to have been a change in Muslim attitudes since 11 September, with a much more determined rejection of isolation.
