Prayer Vigil in Support of a Fair and Open Hearing for Muhammad Salah


On Monday March 6th, CAIR-Chicago and community members attended a vigil at the Chicago Federal Plaza to peacefully protest the closed hearings determining the admissibility of torture induced confessions in the Muhammad Salah case. Over one hundred participants attended, showing their support for Muhammad Salah and his family despite the cold and wet conditions outside during the weekday vigil. The vigil took place from 10am to Noon, as community members and activists walked silently around the center of the plaza carrying signs of protest and white balloons.

Inside the Chicago Federal Plaza, witnesses were providing secret testimony about torture obtained evidence against Salah in a closed court session, an instance that adds to the long list of civil rights abuses that Muhammad Salah and his family has endured over the last seven years.

Channel 2 News, Channel 7, Fox News, and the Chicago Sun-Times brought media representatives to cover the Salah vigil. As a legal precendent, the Salah case stands in gross violation of the U.S. Constitution, and threatens the rights of Muslims, minorities, and all American citizens in the United States.
