A Houston, Texas area man has claimed that his apartment complex recently ordered him to take down an American flag he was displaying outside of his home on the grounds that it was “a threat to the Muslim community,” reports KHOU.
“What really stunned me is that she said it’s a threat towards the Muslim, like community,” said Duy Tran, who was warned to remove it only days after moving in. “I mean, I’m not a threat towards nobody.”
The manager at the El Dorado Lodge gave reporters a printed statement, but refused to answer questions and called the police to have the news crew removed.
Tran says he will not be removing the flag until the complex management can prove to him that doesn’t have a right to have the flag, adding “I’ve got friends who died for this country.”
