(SEE VIDEO) Event About Increasing Awareness and Understanding of American Muslims Brings in Massive Crowd in Manchester

A special meeting took place Tuesday night for the stated purpose of increasing awareness and understanding of American Muslims. The event was held in Manchester, Tennessee. 

The event called “Public Disclosure in a Diverse Society” was held at the Manchester-Coffee County Conference Center.

Special speakers for the event were Bill Killian, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, and Kenneth Moore, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Knoxville Division. Killian said the community forum was an educational effort to inform the community about civil rights laws as they play into the exercise of religious freedom.

Sponsor of the event was the American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee—a 15-member board formed two years ago when the General Assembly was considering passing legislation that would restrict those who worship Sharia Law, which is followed by Muslims.

An estimated crowd of over 1,000 gathered before the event with only 600-700 people allowed inside. See the video from the event BELOW.
