Muslim woman ejected from Donald Trump rally

New York: A Muslim advocacy group has called on Republican US presidential candidate Donald Trump to apologise after a Muslim woman engaged in a silent protest was removed by security personnel and booed by the crowd at his rally in South Carolina on Friday night.

“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,” said Nihad Awad​, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

“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,” Mr Awad said.
