Hate crimes against Muslims spike after Trump win – Al Jazeera

The number of anti-Muslim hate crimes in the United States rose 91 percent in the first half of the year compared with the same period in 2016, according to a leading Muslim advocacy and civil rights group.

In a report published on Monday, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said hate crimes have spiked since 2016, which was the worst year on record for anti-Muslim incidents since the group began its documenting system in 2013.

The number of bias incidents in the first half of 2017 also rose by 24 percent compared to the first six months of 2016, CAIR said.
