The owner of the shop, Target Sports in Royal Oak, Mich., agreed to stop selling the item after a meeting with Dawud Walid, the executive director of the Michigan chapter of CAIR, The Daily Mail reports.
The manufacturer, Thompson Target, will continue advertising the life-sized target, called Crazy Bones, on its website despite also being contacted by Mr. Walid, according to The Macomb (Mich.) Daily.
The CAIR director told the Huffington Post that he was worried the target might cause gun owners to view any Muslim in traditional dress as an enemy.
