The University of Maryland has announced it will postpone a campus screening of “American Sniper” after concerned student organizations raised objections.
One of those groups is the Muslim Students Association – and here’s what they had to say about the story of American war hero Chris Kyle:
“American Sniper only perpetuates the spread of Islamophobia and is offensive to many Muslims around the world for good reason. This movie dehumanizes Muslim individuals, promotes the idea of senseless mass murder, and portrays negative and inaccurate stereotypes.”
That was enough for the university’s Student Entertainment Events to capitulate and pull the plug, posting this message on its website:
“SEE is choosing to explore the proactive measures of working with others during the coming months to possibly create an event where students can engage in constructive and moderated dialogues about the controversial topics proposed in the film.”
