Michigan has one of the larger Muslim populations in the country. Today, community leaders from across the state will be gathering in Lansing for the annual Michigan Muslim Capitol Day. The event, organized by the Michigan Muslim Community Council, seeks to strengthen relationships with state lawmakers.

Dr. Farhan Bhatti, a local physician and board member at the Islamic Center of East Lansing and MSU psychiatrist Dr. Farha Abbasi discuss the goals and concerns of the Michigan Muslim community.
