Harvard University is facing a government investigation for possible discrimination following a civil rights complaint filed by Arab and Muslim students, according to media reports.

The Muslim Legal Fund of America, which lodged the complaint on behalf of the students in January, claims that students have faced “rampant harassment and racist attacks including doxxing, stalking and assault simply for being Palestinian, Muslim, and supporters of Palestinian rights.”

The legal fund stresses that the investigation signifies an important step toward accountability and justice for these students, who all deserve the right to learn in a safe environment and the freedom to express their views.
