The imam at the Nueces Mosque near UT, Umer Esmail, says they want to make sure students are safe when they come to the mosque.
"We need to provide security for them, that should be our top priority," Esmail said.
This is after Esmail says a student was allegedly pushed to the ground on Guadalupe Street the day after the Paris attacks.
"Because he had headphones on, the guy yelled at him saying are you taking instructions from ISIS," Esmail said. "This is like a wakeup call for us, we need to do something because we have students coming here."
That alleged assault just a few blocks away from the mosque is one of the reasons Esmail says they're having Austin Police do a security survey on his mosque. He says APD will also be surveying other Austin mosques.
So what now only white Christians can wear headphones in America? That is some racist shit right there.
And things are only going to get worse for the Islamic community in America with the GOP presidential candidates and Fox News spending virtually 24 hours a day trying to frighten them about terrorism, Syrian refugees, and now apparently headphones.
You wait, we can only be about a week or less away from the first shooting of a Muslim for simply being Muslim.
