Texas Muslims Feel Targeted by FBI


Muslim students approached by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents say they feel profiled for their religion and ethnicity.

Late last fall and in March, students said agents approached them on campus and at work to inquire about their beliefs and affiliations.

Political science senior Borna Danesh said he first encountered the bureau when representatives greeted him outside his class in November, around the time of the Nov. 5, 2009 Fort Hood shooting.

Danesh said FBI agents questioned him as they walked across campus, asking him to identify radical UTD students, radical preachers and asking him about his political views.

He said he was questioned again this spring, and still isn't sure what prompted the interest. (More)
