CAIR Joins Protests
against Modi’s Visit
Washington, DC: CAIR has called on
the Bush administration to block the entry of an Indian
official accused of complicity in the massacre of more
than 1,000 Muslim civilians.
Narendra Modi, chief minister of India's state of Gujarat,
is the "chief guest" of the Asian American Hotel
Owner Association (AAHOA) at its annual convention next
month in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
CAIR is seeking to block Modi's entry based on a section
(Sec. 604) of the International Religious Freedom Act
that makes any foreign official who has engaged in "particularly
severe violations of religious freedom" inadmissible
to the United States.
