The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is demanding an apology from Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump after a Muslim woman was removed from a South Carolina campaign rally. CAIR Executive Director, Nihad Awad, said in a statement.
“The image of a Muslim woman being abused and ejected from a political rally sends a chilling message to American Muslims and to all those who value our nation’s traditions of religious diversity and civic participation,”
“Donald Trump should issue a public apology to the Muslim woman kicked out of his rally and make a clear statement that American Muslims are welcome as fellow citizens and as participants in the nation’s political process.”
Police removed Rose Hamid, who was wearing a hijab, after she stood up in silent protest in the stands behind Trump when he suggested that Syrian refugees fleeing violence in their home country are affiliated with Islamic State militants.
From the look of things, Trump doesn’t seem to care whether he gets Muslim votes or not, he seem to be really interested in the security of America and Americans. To this end, he is not likely going to yield to the apologetic demand.
