Assaults against Muslims in United States surpass 2001 level

The hate crime rate come from the FBI's report, "Hate Crime Statistics, 2016", the latest release from its Uniform Crime Reporting system.

According to the report, Muslims in the USA experienced a massive increase in hate crimes in 2016.

The report found a total of 6,063 general incidents past year, with more than 7,509 victims and nearly 6,000 offenders involved.

The yearly report is the most comprehensive accounting of hate crimes in the U.S. But authorities have long warned it is incomplete, in part because it is based on voluntary reporting by police agencies across the country.

"It's deeply disturbing to see hate crimes increase for the second year in a row", said ADL's Greenblatt.

The Bureau, among others, registered 12 anti-Hindu hate crimes, seven anti-Sikh hate crimes and one case against the Buddhist community. One hate crime offense was recorded against the Buddhist community.

"We should be devoting significant resources to combating the insidious spread of hate-motivated attacks, including greater incentives for local enforcement to report these crimes", said the senator.

In a June investigation, New Times partnered with the investigative-reporting nonprofit ProPublica to take its own tally of hate crimes across the Sunshine State.

Many minorities, including members of the LGBTQ community and immigrants, have a history of underreporting hate crimes to law enforcement because they fear retaliation, she said.

About 3 percent resulted from anti-Asian bias, while almost four percent of victims were American Indian or Alaska Native. In 2015 and 2016, that number was driven by crimes against people due to their race or ethnicity. The letter also highlights the coalition's broader priorities to help inform the DOJ's plan of action to prevent and respond to hate violence. Anti-Muslim intimidation also increased in 2016, with 144 reported victims, compared with 120 the previous year.

"There's a unsafe disconnect between the rising problem of hate crimes and the lack of credible data being reported", ADL National Director Jonathan Greenblatt said.
