#1 I love how the "American Muslim Council" feels qualified to represent all Asian Americans! I really don't believe Asian Americans feel repressed all. They sure haven't been complaining much, and they all seem pretty well-integrated into American society; excelling in both education and economic endeavors....

#2  I think the AMC is referring to Muslims of Pakistani origin as opposed to the Middle Eastern Arabs and Persians. Brits often refer to Pakistanis and Indians as "Asians" whereas we call them simply "Pakistanis and Indians" and reserve "Asian" for "Orientals", e.g. Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Vietnamese, etc.
