VOICE OF THE MUS­LIMS Dar­ing but un­just ... Trump ‘loses’ more Mus­lim votes

Jamaica Gleaner - - NEWS - Damion Mitchell Editor – Ra­dio & On­line

THE RHETORIC on the United States (US) po­lit­i­cal plat­form has not es­caped the world head of the Ah­madiyya Mus­lim com­mu­nity Mirza Mas­roor Ah­mad, and he’s hav­ing his say: The Repub­li­can nom­i­nee Don­ald Trump would not get his vote.

“We would pre­fer to vote in favour of that per­son who is dar­ing and can do jus­tice,” Ah­mad told The Sun­day Gleaner at his London of­fice in the United King­dom.

In­deed, Trump may be bold, but the spir­i­tual leader, also called the Caliph, does not think the Amer­i­can pres­i­den­tial hope­ful will do jus­tice, at least, given his out­bursts on the po­lit­i­cal plat­form against Mus­lims call­ing for a ban on their travel to the US as a so­lu­tion on ter­ror­ism.
