As Ramadan approached, the Council on American-Islamic Relations issued an alert to all mosques and Islamic organizations nationwide, warning them to be vigilant after incidents of violence against Muslims in recent weeks and a year punctuated by an increase in anti-Muslim hate crimes, hate incidents and rhetoric.

CAIR-LA has issued a similar alert for all mosques in Southern California, said executive director Hussam Ayloush.

“We’re asking mosque administrators to make sure the areas are well-lit and there’s adequate security available,” he said.
