Earlier today, the Muslim communities in the Greater Fredericksburg condemned the apparent anti- Muslim and anti-immigrant hate that motivated this terrorist attacks and urged all worship places in the United States and worldwide to step up security measures.
Many statistics have reported an unprecedented spike in hate, bigotry, and violence targeting American Muslims, African-Americans, Jews, immigrants, and members of other minority groups in the last two years.
