The US House of Representatives passed a bill against Islamophobia proposed by Muslim Democrat Alhan Omar.

The purpose of the bill is to draw the attention of the U.S. State Department to Islamophobia.

After the bill is passed, the State Department will appoint a special envoy to report Islamophobic incidents to the State Department.

All Democrats voted against the Islamophobic bill with 219 votes, while all 212 Republicans voted against it.

Alhan Omar was also criticized by a Republican congressman when he proposed a bill against Islamophobia.

During the debate, Republican Scott Perry accused Alhan Omar of belonging to a terrorist organization, but after the bill passed, Scott Perry’s words were deleted by the House of Representatives.
