Find and Punish Man Accused of Beating Muslims

Target: Commissioner of the New York Police Department, James O’Neill

Goal: Demand that police apprehend and investigate a man accused of punching two men after asking if they were Muslim.

Two men were left bruised and battered after an encounter with a man who wanted to know if they were Muslim. One 20-year-old man suffered a broken jaw at the hands of his attacker and the other, a 58-year-old-man, had a bloody nose and a swollen face. The violence appears to be religiously and racially motivated.

One victim claims that he was asked if he was from Saudi Arabia and if he was a Muslim before the man struck him in the face. The other victim was simply asked if he was Muslim before the attacker broke his jaw. Each innocent victim will have to suffer with the pain of their injuries and the fear that they might be targeted in this way again. The suspect has yet to be apprehended, but the police have released video footage of the alleged attacker.

Hate crimes have seen a notable increase of 115 percent since Election Day. It is clear that not enough is being done to combat the rise in hate crimes fueled by incendiary comments made by politicians. The police must do more to protect targeted ethnicities and religions.

We can’t allow this kind of bigotry to continue if we want to still be a free and secular country. Sign this petition to urge police to find this suspect, and crack down on hate crime in the city before it spirals out of control.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Commissioner O’Neill,

Hate crimes have been on the rise in New York City since the Presidential Election. More must be done to combat this epidemic that threatens our collective freedoms.

Two men were left bruised and battered after an encounter with a man that wanted to know if they were Muslim. One 20-year-old man suffered a broken jaw and the other, a 58-year-old-man, had a bloody nose and a swollen face. The violence appears to be religiously and racially motivated. One man claims that he was asked if he was from Saudi Arabia and if he was a Muslim before he was struck in the face. The other man was simply asked if he was Muslim before his attacker broke his jaw. Each innocent victim will have to suffer with the pain of their injuries and the fear that they might be targeted in this way again.

It is time to take a stand against the incendiary and ignorant comments made by politicians. Please find and punish those responsible for these despicable attacks against citizens of New York.

  1. On the contrary, find the man and give him the Nobel Prize for beating underhuman Muslims !

  2. Angela Rabon says:

    Nobody deserves to be treated like that regardless of your race or beliefs! What if someone did the same to YOU for your beliefs?
