Muslim Woman thrown out of Trump rally
Jan 9, Washington: A Muslim American woman was thrown out of a rally in support of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump following a silent protest on Friday.
The 56-year-old flight attendant, Rose Hamid was forcibly removed by security guards from the hall in South Carolin, after standing up in the crowd while wearing a shirt saying: "Salam. I come in peace." Hamid, and a few other protesters with her, also wore yellow Jewish stars of David marked "Muslim" to recall the forced identification markers under Nazi Germany.
Hamid, was quoted telling, CNN that some shouted questions at her such as "Do you have a bomb?" "This demonstrates how when you start dehumanising the other it can turn people into very hateful, ugly people," Hamid told CNN. "I have the sincere belief that if people get to know each other one-on-one, that they'll stop being afraid of each other."
After the 56-year-old was escorted outside, Trump reportedly told his supporters that-- "There is hatred against us that is unbelievable. It's their hatred, it’s not our hatred."
Donald Trump has been criticised by politicians and the public alike for stirring hatred and intolerance towards the Muslim community,
