On June 24, 2010 CAIR-Oklahoma  called on State Representative Rex Duncan to “acknowledge that his actions have contributed to a growing level of Islamophobia in Oklahoma and nationwide.”  Duncan was the sponsor of the sponsor a November ballot measure that would ban local courts from considering Islamic law.

“Representative Duncan’s bizarre vendetta against Islam will inevitably have a negative impact on the lives of ordinary Muslims and sends the false message that our great state is intolerant of minorities,” said CAIR-OK Executive Director Razi Hashmi. “I urge Representative Duncan to acknowledge the harm he is doing to interfaith relations in our state and to meet with Oklahoma Muslim leaders.”
