On October 7, 2002 The Idaho Statesman reported that "a national Islamic civil rights and advocacy group is calling on Idaho law enforcement officials to step up protection of that state’s Muslim community following an incident in which a Muslim woman died in a fire that may be bias-related. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), says the weekend fire maybe the second time in a week that the local Muslim community may have been targeted by a hate crime."
