Hate crimes against Muslims in United States doubled in three years

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy group, said in a statement that the new Federal Bureau of Investigation hate crime report shows the need for all Americans to stand up to increasing bigotry nationwide. Jews were targeted in more than half the 1,500 plus crimes motivated by religion.

There were 10 incidents of hate-crimes against Hindus and seven against Sikhs in 2016 - the year of the rise of Donald Trump as a politician and his election as president.

The FBI says hate crimes jumped by five percent across the country a year ago, with bias incidents involving race or ethnicity showing the largest increase.

Senate lifts suspension on Ndume
Senator Ekweremadu, who was presiding, said the Senate's decision is without prejudice to any ongoing court proceedings. Justice Quadri held that "The suspension of the plaintiff is hereby declared illegal, unlawful and unconstitutional".

The report was based on data voluntarily submitted by about 15,000 law enforcement agencies.

Minnesota reported 119 hate crimes previous year, up from 109 in 2015. Hate crimes against black people declined by 3 offenses from 2015 to 2016. Fifty-four percent of these incidents were anti-Jewish, and 25 percent were anti-Muslim. As many as 62 percent of those hate crimes targeted gay men. Additionally, there were 105 incidents against transgender people last year, a rise of 44 percent from the year before. The rest were crimes against property and crimes against society.

North Dakota reported eight hate crimes past year.
