Extremist interpretations of Islamic law might swell across the U.S. and infect American democracy, sustained protesters who participated at actions organized by ACT for America, which claims Islamic law is incompatible with Western democracy. Some of them declared that Islam can’t peacefully co-exist with the Constitution. On the other part, the counter-protesters’ message was that the majority of Muslims don’t want to replace U.S. law with Islamic law, which refers to guidelines or principles telling how Muslims should live. In a such confrontation of opinions, conciliatory opinions were broadcast. “American Muslims support the American values and freedoms we all cherish,” sustained Arsalan Bukhari, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Counter-manifestation sustains Muslim acceptance
In fact, not only Muslim based extremist attacks occurred in the U.S. but also anti-Muslim incidents including harassment of women wearing Muslim head coverings or vandalism at mosques. People were asked to understand that racism not was and can’t be a value in the American society. Instead, the terrorism must be eradicated with the help and participation of all communities. Police made some arrests during manifestations, to stop and preventing violence.
