CAIR criticized Tennessee gubernatorial candidate Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey and called on him to meet with representatives of that state’s Islamic community after he stated his views on Islam in America.  Responding to a citizen’s question at a campaign stop Ramsey referred to the controversy over the expansion of a mosque in Murfreesboro stating: “You cross the line when they start trying to bring Shariah [Islamic] law into the state of Tennessee… into the United States.”

Said CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper, “We see a disturbing trend in our nation in which it is suggested that American Muslims should have fewer or more restricted constitutional rights than citizens of other faiths.  We urge Lt. Gov. Ramsey to meet with representatives of the Tennessee Muslim community who can offer him balanced and accurate information about Islam.”
