Hearing into 'radicalisation' of US Muslims

Muslim congressman Andre Carson says there are bigger menaces to security.

    A congressional hearing into the "radicalisation" of America's Muslims has led to widespread accusations of Islamophobia.

    The debate has led civil liberties groups and prominent Muslim Americans to raise concerns about religious intolerance in US politics.

    André Carson is one of two Muslims serving in the US Congress.

    The US representative for Indiana's seventh congressional district, who attended the House Committee on Homeland Security hearing on Thursday, told Al Jazeera that there are other more pressing threats to domestic security.
