In US Presidential elections, the Muslim vote played an important part in the key battleground states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Virginia
WASHINGTON — Muslims to Flip the Senate Democratic (MFSD), a newly-formed nationwide alliance of Muslim activists, has announced it will be working with Muslim Delegates and Allies, a women-led coalition, under its president Nadia Ahmad and chairwoman Hanieh Jodat Barnes to increase the voter turnout in Muslim-dominated constituencies in the Georgia Senate elections.
There will be daily phone banks to reach Georgia voters, said Dr Shaik Ubaid, the National Co-chair of MFSD.
“Soon our volunteers will be traveling to Georgia to knock on the doors. We want to strengthen civil rights and human rights as well as the rule of law and environmental-friendly policies which will not be possible if the Senate is controlled by the Trump Republicans,” said Dr Ubaid.
For the Democrats to win the control of the Senate, they will have to win the runoff elections on both the seats in Georgia. The runoff election became necessary after the candidates to both the Senate seats could not cross the 50% mark as required by the Georgia state law.
Earlier, Dr Ubaid had led an alliance called Alliance to Save and Protect America from Infiltration by Religious Extremists (ASPAIRE), which led to the defeat of extremist-sponsored candidates in the US Congress elections such as Sri Preston Kulkarni in Houston and Rishi Tandon in California.
In US Presidential elections, the Muslim vote played an important part in the key battleground states of Michigan, Wisconsin, Virginia and possibly in Georgia and Pennsylvania, where Joe Biden won narrowly over Donald Trump.
