The Pennsylvania chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR-PA) has asked the Pennsylvania State Police to change its mandatory officer training class, “Radical Islam: A Law Enforcement Primer” to offer a more balanced view of Islam.

The course includes topics such as “Muhammad’s Doctrines of War” and describes the “Call to Islam” as “a prerequisite to a Muslim attack on a nation of infidel enemies.”

“We are concerned that this course may provide inaccurate, incomplete or stereotypical information about Islam,” CAIR-PA Civil Rights Director Justin Peyton wrote. “We would like to emphasize that the violent ideologies those individuals falsely attribute to Islam are not characteristic of the American Muslim experience.”

CAIR-PA offered assistance to bring balance to the training program, as the national organization has already done in other states.
