The Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-OK) recently co-sponsored a news conference with the Islamic Society of Tulsa and interfaith leaders in reaction to Islamophobic remarks by lawmakers in that state who rejected Qurans sent as gifts from an ethnic advisory council.
In rejecting the Qurans, Islam’s revealed text, some lawmakers made stereotypical and offensive remarks that falsely linked the faith of Islam to violence.
