Ramadan clash with 9/11 anniversary raises fears of anti-Islam backlash

Islamic groups in the US fear an overlap between the end of Ramadan and the anniversary of 9/11 will lead to criticisms that Muslims are celebrating the 2001 terrorist attacks.

Islam follows a lunar calendar, so Ramadan begins approximately 10 days earlier every year. This year, Eid al-Fitr – the festival that marks the end of fasting – falls on or around September 11.

Some groups worry that the coincidence will increase suspicion and hostility towards Islam at a time when feelings towards their religion are already running high.

Okay so this is for all the lunatics out there who might get confused and start saying the Muslims are celebrating 9/11. They even changed it from 9/11 to 9/12 so not to anger anyone and also to mourn the loved ones they lost in the horrific attacks.

I'm quite sure this will 'some how' slip past the racists and they will use this as some type of rallying crie. Let's just hope they keep their heads on their shoulders and not in their ass.
