On May 13, 2003 The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that "Fazal Khan was planning a voter registration drive for Muslims around the time U.S.-led coalition forces were gearing up for Operation Iraqi Freedom... Metro Atlanta was spared any major backlash, but Khan postponed the event anyway... Now the war is over, and the voter registration drive is back on track, set for 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at Buford Dam Park on Lake Lanier. Metro Atlanta's Muslim communities are invited to a community picnic that's serving up the chance for eligible immigrants to register."
