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.
