CAIR ASKS NY CITY COUNCIL TO STOP NYPD 'BAITING' OF MUSLIMS

Muslim World

The New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NY) on October 23 called on the New York City Council to pass legislation that would increase oversight of the NYPD and cut the department’s unconstitutional spying program, including the aggressive “baiting” of Muslims by NYPD informants. CAIR-NY said the “baiting” practice was revealed in an Associated Press report on the still-evolving New York Police Department (NYPD) Muslim spying scandal. Today’s article detailed the story of Shamiur Rahman, a 19-year-old American of Bengali descent who was recruited by the FBI as an informant after his third arrest on minor drug charges. Rahman said his NYPD handlers instructed him to join groups of Muslims at mosques or religious study groups and start conversations about terrorism, recording the conversations for the NYPD. He also gave the NYPD photos, names, cell phone numbers, and licence plate numbers of Muslims who welcomed him to their events.
