WASHINGTON - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a prominent Muslim civil rights and advocacy organisation, called on leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to offer a public apology to a Muslim woman verbally abused by the crowd and kicked out of one of his campaign rallies Friday night in South Carolina.
“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,” CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad said in a statement.
