Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Spokesperson Says Travel Ban Should Not Be Used To Impose Policies of Bigotry


A spokesperson for one of America’s oldest Muslim organization who lives in Richmond has reacted to the Supreme Court decision upholding President Trump’s travel ban on the issue of national security.

Salaam Bhatti is a national spokesperson for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.

“Of course, security concerns are genuine and proper vetting is essential. But we have to do this with honesty, integrity and absolute justice. But this national security concern phraseology should never be used as cover to impose policies that emit bias and bigotry.”

His is a sect of the Muslim community that historically stresses non-violence and tolerance of other faiths.
