An anti-terrorism hearing set for Friday morning in Manhattan is drawing sharp criticism from the Muslim community.

Critics say the New York State Senate is holding a local version of the controversial hearing Congressman Peter King held on Capitol Hill in March.

King will be among those testifying.

Among the topics, the panel plans to inquire about the threat of radical Islam.
