This event was organized to discuss the aftermath of the US elections 2016,sets through which Donald Trump unexpectedly secured victory and is now set to be the US 45th president. For US Muslims, the outcome of this election has heightened their fears of discrimination, violence, torture, harassment, deportation and so on. What also compounded these fears are the recent first selection for cabinet in which Trump opts for hardliners for top posts.
