NYPD Muslim Surveillance Program Revealed


US Muslim groups this week accused the New York Police Department of violating the civil rights of Muslims, after the Associated Press reported the department designated a number of mosques as terrorist organizations. That allowed police to spy extensively on mosque attendees without evidence of wrongdoing. This is the latest in a series of AP reports about the NYPD’s widespread surveillance of the city’s Muslim population. The American Civil Liberties Union is suing the department.
