As a response to the riots and violence our country has faced during the past few weeks, Muslim Alliance of Indiana and the Indiana Muslim Advocacy Network have put together a Community Safety Alert for those Muslims and minorities all across Indiana. As there has not been any immediate threats, we ask that you stay safe, cautious and report any suspicious activities to authorities. Please share with your Masjids, communities, friends and families.

Indiana Muslim Community Condemns Anti-Catholic & Anti-Muslim Comments
Indiana Muslim Advocacy Network, Muslim Alliance of Indiana, and the Muslim Community Center, on behalf of their leadership and constituents, strongly condemn past anti-Muslim and anti-Catholic remarks posted on Facebook by John Jacob, the Republican candidate vying to represent Indiana State House District 93.
The remarks posted on the personal facebook page of Republican candidate John Jacob attack two religious groups that have the right to freedom of religion, a fundamental principle in our constitution. His posts sow bigotry and division in our Hoosier state. In such a divisive time, we expect candidates from all political parties vying to serve in the Indiana General Assembly to champion the cause of unity and fight against hatred and bigotry. We expect them to be representatives of ALL Hoosiers and we call on Mr. Jacob to renounce the hateful comments.
The two organizations, along with multi-faith orgnaizations and allies across the state, stand firm with the Indiana Muslim community and the Catholic parishioners and assert that such bigotry and hatred has no place in our Hoosier state.
Signed in unity,
