Dr Md Ali Bhuiyan: Few bad apples don’t make all Muslims terrorists
Dr Mohammad Ali Bhuiyan, a Bangladeshi-American Muslim running for Congress in Georgia, has had his response go viral after a reporter questioned whether he had ever denounced Muslim terror attacks. In the first round of a debate, panellist Giovanna Drpic of CBS 46 asked Dr Mohammad Ali on the American public’s discomfort with electing a Muslim to office, if he had used the term “radical Islam” and whether he had “publically denounced terror attacks by Muslims”. In response, the Bangladeshi-American said: “Well, it’s a very interesting race. As you pointed out, I am a Muslim candidate, Mr. Jon Ossoff is an orthodox Jewish candidate, we have Baptists . . . all kinds of religions. None of the other religions are mentioned but I get this question all the time. “I denounce any forms of violence or extremism anywhere in the world, here, anywhere, by anybody, not just one religion—any religion.” “When the Oklahoma bombing took place, by Timothy McVeigh, it did not make every Christian a terrorist. Similarly, a few Muslim bad apples do not make all Muslims terrorists,” Dr Mohammad Ali added. The debate was organised for the 18 candidates running in a special election to fill the vacant seat left by former republican congressman Tom Price, who has assumed office as the secretary of Health and Human Services.
