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.
Trump’s sentiments worsened after his policy was challenged from a Democratic campaign stage by the Muslim parents of a slain US Marine who died under tragic circumstances in Iraq in 2004.
“Even now, if you see the situation, his own party members have started saying they will never vote in favour of him, so, what of me?” asked Ahmad, in his first public reaction since the Trump outbursts in July.
