Are Muslims in the US the victims of another McCarthy-type witch hunt?
For the first time in US history, at least 15 states have either approved or introduced bills banning sharia law.
On Wednesday’s Riz Khan we discuss the rise of anti-Muslim rhetoric with Islamic scholar Sheikh Hamza Yusuf.
These bills may make it a crime for Muslims to fast, pray, or even donate to charity. And on Thursday, in a move that many critics deem unconstitutional, congressional hearings chaired by Peter King, the Republican representative, will begin examining the so-called radicalisation within the American Muslim community.
