Muslim groups plan rally after NYPD intel report

Muslim groups, interfaith leaders plan rally in wake of NYPD intel report on surveillance By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' Muslim groups and interfaith leaders are holding a rally in the wake of a report about New York Police Department intelligence.

The rally is scheduled for 3 p.m. Friday at Manhattan's Foley Square. It will be followed by a march to police headquarters.

A secret police document shows that the NYPD recommended increasing surveillance of thousands of Muslims and their mosques based solely on their religion.

The Associated Press obtained a copy of the May 2006 NYPD intelligence report on Iran. It says police should expand clandestine operations at Shiite mosques.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg has said the NYPD never considers religion in its policing. Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly has said police only go where investigative leads take them.
