|Students at the University of Minnesota killed a proposed moment of silence for 9/11 victims due to concerns that Muslim students would be offended.
Theo Menon, a Minnesota Student Association representative realized that the university wasn't doing anything to memorialize 9/11.
The passing of this resolution might make a space that is unsafe for students on campus even more unsafe, he said. Algadi expressed concerns in an email to the Washington Post - that efforts to recognize 9/11 are sometimes thinly veiled expressions of Islamophobia.
