Pastors, rabbis and an imam stood together to rally against Trump’s recent language against the Islamic faith.

ImamHossamMusa from theNoorIslamic Center in Columbus was there to speak against the presidential candidate’s rhetoric and to also condemn the recent terrorist attack in California.

Musa: “If any so-called Muslim commits a crime -- our religion Islam is free of those criminal actions and we stand strongly condemning it and preaching the true, clear Islam.”

Musa added that it’s unfair that he even has to come out with that condemnation, but said it’s necessary.
