The attorney general further called on all members of the commission to “exercise great care in their communications and conduct, considering the duties and responsibilities they assumed when joining the Commission.”

Jennifer Donelan, a spokeswoman for Brown’s office, indicated “the views and opinions of any individual commission member do not reflect those of either the Maryland Commission on Hate Crime Response and Prevention or the Attorney General,” reported WMAR-TV. Donelan noted that the commission still needs to “develop policies and protocols governing … the way in which its members engage on the issues that define its mission.” Following her alleged suspension, Chaudry stated on X, “I expect the gaslighting attacks – Zionist hate will never stop my activism. Stay loud, stay strong, fight harder for a FREE PALESTINE.” The Maryland House of Delegates wrote to Brown on Nov. 22 asking that Chaudry not be reinstated, reported WBOC-TV.

“The aggressive antisemitism of this post is unseemly from any decent person but is especially objectionable from someone serving on a commission whose sole purpose is to prevent hate crimes,” said the letter.

CAIR, meanwhile, pushed a petition that claimed, “Chaudry’s suspension is a blatant act of censorship and a betrayal of the very values that the Hate Crimes Commission is supposed to uphold. Her outspoken criticism of the Israeli government’s human rights abuses and her unwavering support for Palestinian rights have made her a target for anti-Muslim extremists, but they should not be allowed to silence her.”
