Muhammad Ali Speaks Out About Donald Trumps’ Remarks On Muslim Ban

by Rafeal Crawford

Presidential candidate Donald Trump made headlines again about protecting our US borders, but it not aimed at Hispanics this go round. Trump put his focus towards the Muslim community saying that he wants to put a temporary ban on Muslims entering the US-based on the recent attack in Paris and San Bernardino.

His remark has cause quite a stir from both parties who do not agree with his view and it has caused boxing great and legend Muhammad Ali who is Muslim to speak out about Trump’s remarks.

“I am a Muslim and there is nothing Islamic about killing innocent people in Paris, San Bernardino, or anywhere else in the world,” Ali said in the statement. “True Muslims know that the ruthless violence of so-called Islamic Jihadists goes against the very tenets of our religion.”

Ali also asked Muslims to “stand up to those who use Islam to advance their own personal agenda.”

“I believe that our political leaders should use their position to bring understanding about the religion of Islam and clarify that these misguided murderers have perverted people’s views on what Islam really is,” he said.
