Some Muslims questioning relationships with FBI

Some Muslims questioning relationships with FBI

A coalition of Muslim groups is calling for Muslims to stop fully cooperating with the FBI.
The American Muslim Taskforce on Civil Rights and Elections is upset over what it says is increasing government surveillance in mosques, new federal guidelines they say encourage profiling, and the FBI's suspension of ties with the nation's largest Muslim civil rights group.
Petition signers stress they will cooperate with the FBI on matters of safety and national security, but are calling for an end to community outreach initiatives.
Some prominent Muslim groups and leaders are not signing the petition. They say relationships with the FBI have been working well. FBI officials say they are dedicated to maintaining dialogue with the Muslim community.
