Connecticut Muslims

Police in Norwalk, Connecticut say they were notified of anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant flyers posted on the windshields of cars this past Saturday. The flyers said that Allah was an extraterrestrial that received powers from the daily prayers of Muslims.

The flyers also said that immigrants needed to be banned and they and their families needed to be sent back to where they came from.

Farhan Memon is a board member with the Al-Madany Islamic Center of Norwalk. He told The Hour he was shocked by the flyer’s contents and that they spread misinformation about Islam.
