CHICAGO - A US Senate hearing on anti-Muslim bigotry set for next week drew praise from American Muslims who see it as a "counterweight" to a congressional probe into Muslim radicalization.

US Senator Dick Durbin, who will chair the March 29 hearing, said it was being held in response to recent incidents targeting Muslims such as Koran burnings and restrictions on mosque construction.

Representative Peter King, who convened hearings on March 10, said Muslim Americans must do more to combat Islamic radicalization as al Qaeda targets them to help carry out terrorism plots.
