TEHRAN (IQNA) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations, the United States’ largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, condemned numerous incidents of police brutality that have occurred during nationwide protests sparked by George Floyd’s murder in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

 

In a statement, CAIR National Deputy Director Edward Ahmed Mitchell said, “Engaging in police brutality at a protest against police brutality is a surefire way to escalate the unrest occurring on streets across our nation. The imposition of a curfew does not give any police officer free reign to gas, beat, shoot rubber bullets at, or otherwise attack protesters and journalists.

“Although we are not surprised to see that extremists and infiltrators continue to use peaceful protests as an opportunity to engage in violence, we expect and demand better from the law enforcement officers sworn to serve and protect their communities.”

On Monday, June 1, CAIR-Minnesota plans to take part in a rally at the Governor’s Mansion to renew the demand for the arrest of all officers involved in the killing of George Floyd.
