OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Muslims from across Oklahoma are to be in Oklahoma City for the first-ever Muslim Day at the Capitol, and at least two groups have reserved space at the Capitol in protest.

The Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations will host the event at the Capitol on Friday. Executive Director Adam Soltani says more than 100 people are expected to attend.

A similar event at the state Capitol in Texas earlier this year drew a small group of vitriolic protesters who heckled Muslim participants.

The conservative groups Overpasses for America and III Percent Patriots of Oklahoma have reserved space as part of a protest to Muslim Day in Oklahoma while a Libertarian group plans to rally in support of Muslim Day.
