Though there have been no recently reported anti-Muslim incidents in the Beehive State, Iqbal Hossain understands the worry.
"Right now, it's a kind of negative atmosphere," said Hossain, former president of the Islamic Society of Greater Salt Lake. "All the rhetoric coming from people like Donald Trump and Ben Carson and other conservatives doesn't help."
At the Khadeeja Islamic Center in West Valley City, Muslims don't talk about it, he said, "but I can sense some anxiety and uncertainty."
There was a report that a "white person in a car with Nevada license plates parked and took photos of the mosque from the road," he said. "In a normal time, these kinds of things probably wouldn't raise any alarms, but in this climate, the community is on edge."
Such incidents, Hossain said, "aggravate the situation."
The longtime Utah resident is not afraid of violence or physical harm, he said, as much as he is that his faith will be misunderstood and mischaracterized.
He and other Muslim leaders have made clear that the militant Islamic State group, or ISIS, does not represent Islam.
Hossain does not want to be "persecuted or have negative things said about him behind his back because he is a Muslim."
"Humiliation," he added, "is more damaging than if somebody harms me physically."
