Trump Urged to Apologize to Muslim Protester

Trump Urged to Apologize to Muslim Protester Trump Urged to Apologize to Muslim Protester

The Council on American-Islamic Relations has urged Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump to apologize to a Muslim protester ejected from one of his rallies. CAIR said Rose Hamid’s eviction from the rally in South Carolina sent a “chilling message to American Muslims”. Hamid was removed after making a silent protest on Friday. Trump’s proposed ban on Muslims entering the US has been widely condemned, BBC reported. During the rally in the town of Rock Hill, Hamid stood up wearing a T-shirt bearing the words: “Salam, I come in peace” - “Salam” is the Arabic word for peace. When she stood up, the crowd around her began chanting “Trump! Trump!” as they had reportedly been instructed to do in the event of any interruption. Hamid, a 56-year-old flight attendant, was then told by a security officer that she had to leave. She was booed as she was escorted out.
