CAIR Launches Campaign To Challenge Anti-Muslim Bigotry
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Launched Satirical ‘#ISLAMOPHOBIN’ Public Awareness Campaign to Challenge Anti-Muslim Bigotry
The largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization in United States, today launched a satirical public awareness campaign to challenge growing Islamophobia in America.
In its new social media campaign, CAIR is distributing “ISLAMOPHOBIN®,” a mock-medicine designed to “cure” Islamophobia and includes a television commercial for the product. (NOTE: ISLAMOPHOBIN is actually sugar-free-chewing gum. Use #ISLAMOPHOBIN. SEE sample tweets below.)
“We hope humor will help create public awareness about the harm Islamophobia does not only to ordinary American Muslims, but also to the values of equality and religious freedom upon which our nation was founded,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. “ISLAMOPHOBIN is funny, but Islamophobia is not.”
