USA Today published a headline story in their Sunday, October 12, 2014 Money section titled “Sharia financing takes off in the West.” A full page Samsung advertisement paid the way for USA Today to publish this rubbish. Click on the below photograph to enlarge.
The article reports that Ahmed Khan wanted to expand his Halal only meat company, Barkaat Foods, in America. However, Khan’s “strict adherence to his Muslim faith” would not allow him to obtain a traditional American loan. He needed a loan that would comply with Islamic Sharia law.
Prairie Street Capital invested the money in Barkaat Foods that Khan needed to expand. Michael Barry, president of Prairie Street Capital said “The U.S. Muslim population is projected to grow by 35% in the next 20 years, so Barkaat was uniquely positioned. We saw a business that we felt good about owning, we felt good about being a part of.” Prairie Street Capital is also invested in Glass America, MilesTek, Weld Racing, Copperfield, Pyramid Industries, Intech Edm and Xycarb Ceramics.
So USA Today wrote a glowing headline article that clearly applauds an American business for providing Sharia compliant funds to a company that sells Sharia compliant Halal meats.
Does USA Today and Prairie Street Mortgage not know that Sharia law advocates many practices that conflict with the rights afforded under the United States Constitution and/or violate state and federal law including:
Does USA Today and Prairie Street Capital not know that instead of Muslims assimilating in America and embracing the United States Constitution they are holding on to Sharia law which governs twenty five countries (Muslims and non-Muslims)? Does USA Today and Prairie Street Capital not know that Islamist leaders are calling for America to be ruled by Sharia law?
USA Today certainly has the right to choose the reports that they publish. Prairie Street Capital has the right to choose the companies in which they invest. Samsung has the right to choose the mediums in which they advertise. You have the same right to voice your concerns and choose to patronize companies that won't advocate for Sharia law in the United States.
