Donald Trump has been asked by a Muslim advocacy group on Saturday to to apologize after a Muslim woman who was engaged in a peaceful protest was ejected by security personnel and booed by the crowd at the Republican Presidential candidate’s rally in South Carolina on Friday night.
The executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Nihad Awad said, “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.”
However, Ohio Governor John Kasich, who is hoping to be Republican presidential candidate criticized this behavior saying the action of the crowd at Trump’s rally in Rock Hill, South Carolina was inappropriate.
“We don’t need to be shouting and booing and scaring somebody who decided to stand up and have some sort of silent protest,” Kasich said while addressing newsmen.
“What the heck is that about? We’re not in high school. I mean, this is not some god-darn high school basketball game where we’re booing the other team” he continued.
