Previously, we heard about the local FBI office’s efforts to improve its reputation. We’ll get reaction from local imam <a href="http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/2011-09-08/local-imam-reflects-life-america-decade-after-911-91663">Abdul Malik Mujahid</a>. He’s the executive producer of the local program Radio Islam and a frequent guest on <em>Worldview</em>.</p><p>In a 2003 article, he likened the situation for Muslim Americans to a "virtual internment camp." Although he says law enforcement outreach has been strong locally, Mujahid wants to see more engagement on the national level.</p></p> Fri, 09 Sep 2011 18:33:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/2011-09-09/chicago-imam-examines-current-relations-between-law-enforcement-and-musl
