CAIR-MI Press Release  ~ Monday, July 21, 2014
CAIR- MI Calls for Hate Crime Probe of Attack on Muslim Woman at Meridian Mall, Okemos
 (SOUTHFIELD, MI, 7/21/14) -- The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI) today called on law enforcement authorities and public officials to investigate an alleged attack on a Muslim woman in a shopping mall parking lot in Okemos as a possible hate crime.

On Saturday afternoon at approximately 1 p.m., a witness reported that two men and a woman surrounded a Muslim woman at the Meridian Mall and attempted to pull her dress and face veil off, then knocked her to the ground. The alleged assailants also reportedly shouted expletives at the 26-year-old woman during the incident.  

 

"We urge state, local and federal law enforcement authorities to investigate a possible bias motive for this troubling incident and to make every effort to bring the alleged perpetrators to justice," said CAIR-MI Executive Director Dawud Walid. "We urge public officials to speak out against the anti-Muslim hate that can lead to such attacks."

 

Walid also noted that the victim was hospitalized for 36 hours complaining of chest pain and numbness in her left arm due to the incident.

 

CAIR-MI is a chapter of America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
