Amnesty International (AI) USA has warned about "fear, discrimination and persecution against Muslims" in the United States amid a rising tide of crimes committed against Muslims.



In a new report, the human rights group raised concerns about the increase in anti-Muslim sentiments in the US, Common Dreams reported on Friday.

The report mentioned a number of recent crimes against Muslims, including "the stabbing of a Muslim cab driver in New York, the arson attack against a mosque construction site in Tennessee."

In a related development, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued a statement on Wednesday saying that a mosque in California was recently vandalized with a brick and hate signs referring to controversy over a planned Islamic community center in New York City.

The CAIR statement said that vandals targeting a Madera, California Islamic center left signs reading, 'No temple for the God of terrorism at Ground Zero' and 'Wake up America, the Enemy is here.' The signs were signed by ANB or American Nationalist Brotherhood.

Amnesty International said these crimes "foster a climate of fear, discrimination, and persecution against Muslims." The organization urged US officials to take strong action against attacks targeting the country's Muslim community.

Amnesty International USA is one of many country sections that make up Amnesty International worldwide.

The organization has more than 2.2 million supporters, activists, and volunteers in over 150 countries. It works to protect human rights worldwide, regardless of race, religion, gender, or ethnicity.
