Freshman Rep. Biedermann sends questionnaire to Muslims across the state about radical Islam

Biedermann’s survey went out in advance of Muslim Advocacy Day at Capitol

Freshman Rep. Kyle Biedermann, R-Fredericksburg, sent a questionnaire to Muslims across Texas asking about their support for Shariah law, the Muslim Brotherhood and ex-Muslims. A copy of the survey was obtained by Quorum Report on Wednesday. The return address on it is Biedermann’s Texas Capitol office.

Copies of the survey, marked “URGENT REPLY ASAP” on the envelope and addressed to attendees of Muslim Advocacy Day slated for the end of this month at the Capitol, were sent to Muslims not only in Biedermann’s district in the Hill Country but as far away as North Texas.

The poll asks recipients to check whether they support three items: “Declaration of the Muslim Reform Movement”; “Muslim Pledge for Religious Freedom and Safety from Harm for Former Muslims”; and “S. 2230 of the 114th Congress that requires the U.S. Secretary of State to determine the Muslim Brotherhood meets the criteria for designation as a foreign terrorist organization.”

A spokesman for Rep. Biedermann said he would have a comment Wednesday evening.
