Muslims aren’t the enemy

Originally published in The News Virginian

“Make America Great Again” is a quote used by the GOP front runner Donald Trump repeatedly where he is aiming supposedly to make America great, but so far all we have heard from the candidate is to ban Muslims or remove Muslims from America.

I would like to let Mr. Trump know that it is not the Muslims that America is at war with but it’s this radical extremist group named “ISIS”, which has no link to Islam and its teachings at all. As the president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association USA, Dr. Bilal Rana recently said “I’m not your enemy. I’m your biggest ally.” This was after he was detained on a flight back from Newark Airport because of his “suspicious” appearance.

As member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, we stand united with all Americans in fighting against this radical group. If Americans stay united regardless of religion or race against this extremist group only then can Trump make America great again.
