On Sunday March 6, opponents of upcoming Congressional hearings on the "radicalization" of Muslim Americans gathered in Times Square for a rally called "Faith Under Fire, Today I Am a Muslim Too."

The rally featured appearances by Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf, Russell Simmons, Rabbi Marc Schneier, Rev. Dr. Katharine R. Henderson and other leaders in interfaith relations. A competing rally was also organized by supporters of Rep. Peter King and the Muslim "radicalization" hearings.
