The former boxing legend released a statement Wednesday denouncing Trump’s comments:
“I am a Muslim and there is nothing Islamic about killing innocent people in Paris, San Bernardino, or anywhere else in the world. True Muslims know that the ruthless violence of so called Islamic Jihadists goes against the very tenets of our religion,” Ali said.
Ali also expressed encouragement towards Muslims to “stand up to those who use Islam to advance their own personal agenda.”
He continued, “I believe that our political leaders should use their position to bring understanding about the religion of Islam and clarify that these misguided murderers have perverted people’s views on what Islam really is.”
Since Trump released his proposal, the White House has expressed that they believe the comments disqualify him from serving as President.
We will have to see what happens from here, but what are your thoughts on Muhammed Ali’s statements?
