ING Condemns NYC Plot and Supports Efforts against Extremism; 3/6/10

(San Jose, CA 05/05/2010) – ING (Islamic Networks Group) joins American Muslims and all Americans in voicing outrage at the latest in a string of attacks or plots in recent months that have been perpetrated by Muslims. Saturday’s plot to explode an SUV in Times Square was foiled due to the bravery of New York residents – including a Senegalese Muslim Aliou Niasse, who was the first to notice the smoking car – and the swift work of law enforcement agencies. Plots or attacks such as this that target innocent people are nothing less than hiraba, an Arabic word that means “sowing corruption on earth.” Hiraba is strictly condemned by the Qur’an in the strongest terms, as is the taking of innocent lives, one of the most egregious crimes in Islam. This heinous strategy of targeting innocent civilians going about their lives has become the hallmark of groups claiming to represent Islam against their fellow countrymen and co-religionists in places like Iraq and Pakistan. We support all efforts to both counter the ideology that twists Islamic teachings and sanctions prohibited actions, and prevent the reoccurrence of such unspeakable acts. We applaud the efforts of organizations such as the Muslim Public Affairs Council which is working with law enforcement agencies in concrete ways to combat extremism through its recommendations in a report titled, Forging an Effective Counterterrorism Enterprise between Muslim Americans and Law Enforcement.

ING Participates in Federal Government Meetings; 3/14/10

In response to Comedy Central’s decision to censor an episode of a recent “South Park” featuring a cartoon depiction of the Prophet Muhammad after receiving threats from Muslim extremists, May 20th has been designated “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day” on a Facebook page with the same name. Since then, even the proponent of the original idea, Seattle cartoonist Molly Norris who first suggested the day last month now says the campaign “has lost its anti-censorship focus and is now being used to bash ordinary Muslims.” She also told the Washington Post that “the Facebook protest had become ‘vitriolic and worse, offensive to Muslims who had nothing to do with the censorship issue I was inspired to draw about in the first place.’” Additionally, Jon Wellington, who set up the Facebook page, has quit the site, saying, “I did not create this event to encourage people to be deliberately offensive, by equating the silliness of those zealots with the entire Islamic faith and its bazillions of adherents, a few of whom I am lucky to count among my friends.” Read More

Listening to Those We Serve

The entire experience of planning a series of seminars with ING was inspirational. They did an amazing job. The ING team welcomed input along the way which allowed each session to be even better than the one before it. We will continue to work with ING as I am confident that they will continue to provide value in our work.

City Human Resources Director

I thought the ING seminar, “Preventing and Responding to Anti-Muslim Bigotry,” was an extremely valuable training for law enforcement, especially in today’s day and age with all the misunderstandings and misperceptions of the Muslim community…I feel this training will help my staff and I in developing better relationships and in responding to the needs of our community. I highly recommend this training to others.
