News Desk

US Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has said that Muslims cannot be collectively blamed for the actions of a few terrorists. In an interview to Al Jazeera, the House of Representatives member for Minnesota questioned the basis of President Donald Trump’s derogatory remarks against her She spoke against the offensive comments made by Trump in which she was accused of moderating the 9/11 attacks and appreciating al Qaeda. “Those are horrific attacks. There’s no question about it, that’s not a debatable thing. Innocent Americans lost their lives that day, we all mourn their deaths … And I think it’s quite disgusting that people even question that and want to debate that.” “What is important is the larger point that I was speaking to, which is about making sure that blame isn’t placed on a whole faith, that we as Muslims are not collectively blamed for the actions of terrorists,” Omar added.
