Tabinda Naeem, Urdu VOA News, Washington This report takes a look at the growing phenomenon of Islamophobia in America which some take as an election ploy and some consider a growing concern for American Muslims. Whether US society is becoming Islamophobic or the show of intolerance towards Muslim community is a political ploy...?

Muslim organizations, Community leaders, writers, playwrights and think tank experts, all believe that some elements in American politics want to push a certain political and social agenda forward which is Islamophobic. American Muslims need to be more proactive so that their positive voices can be heard in the mainstream American Media and political corridors.
