“Million Muslim March” Planned for Sept. 11 in Nation's Capital

A “Million Muslim March” is planned by an American Islamic group at the nation's capital on the twelfth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

An American Islamic activist group is organizing what it hopes will be a “Million Muslim March” in the nation's capital on the twelfth anniversary of the attacks carried out by Islamic terrorists on September 11, 2001. Those attacks — in which jet airliners were flown into the twin towers of New York City's World Trade Center, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and into a farm field in rural Pennsylvania — killed nearly 3,000 individuals and sparked the non-stop “War on Terror” that the American government has waged in the years since.

The event, which in a PR decision has now been officially renamed the “Million American March Against Fear,” is being pulled together by a group calling itself the American Muslim Political Action Committee (AMPAC), which said it was planning to make the march an annual event. “We American Muslims reject violence and terrorism, and defend the constitutional rights of all Americans,” said the group's founder, M.D. Alam. “Every year on September 11th, beginning in 2013, we will be marching in Washington, D.C. as we build toward our goal of bringing one million American Muslims to march in our nation's capital.”

The group demanded that the federal government do more to protect the rights of Muslim Americans, which it said have been maligned as villains in the wake of the terrorist attacks. “The entire country was victimized by the acts done on that day,” the group said in a statement, but “we as Muslims continue 12 years later to be victimized by being made the villains. To this day every media outlet and anti Islamic organization has committed slanderous and libelous statements against us as Muslims and our religion of Islam.”

Meanwhile, the statement continued, the government “either sits idly by and does nothing to protect our freedoms or it exacerbates the problem with its constant war on terrorism in Islamic countries, congressional hearings on Islam in America, and its changes to the NDAA law.”
