Commissioner Bitta Mostofi, of the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA), visited the Beit el-Maqdis Islamic Center in Bay Ridge on Aug. 24 during Jummah (Friday) prayers to address concerns from members of the Muslim community, reports Bklyner’s Zainab Iqbal.

Mostofi spoke about the rise of “institutionalized Islamophobia” after the Muslim Ban. “It is our job as the City to fight back against that and to make sure that all of our Muslim fellow New Yorkers know that the City stands with them.”

“We know there have been instances of discrimination or harassment against Muslim communities… it’s our job as the City to be responsive when that happens, to make sure the communities know that they have rights,” she said. “The only way we will make progress in these ways is if the community knows and they’re accessing those rights, they’re reporting crimes, they’re letting us know, and they’re making their voices heard.”

Mostofi answered questions related to the Muslim ban and receiving a green card and also spoke of a major deadline for some members of the Yemeni community. Read more at Bklyner.
