Islamic Circle of North America had a charitable Saturday in Atlantic City; it served to demonstrate that not all Muslims support acts of terror.
“Muslim charities on Saturday distributed groceries, winter gloves and linens to hundreds of needy residents in Atlantic City.
“The items were bought or donated by Muslims from across New Jersey, said Atif Nazir, a board member with the Islamic Circle of North America.
“Atlantic City Imam Amin Muhammad said the charitable outreach helps dispel biases against Islam that are especially pronounced lately during a presidential campaign where candidates such as Donald Trump are calling for a Muslim registry and the expulsion of Muslim refugees.”–Michael Miller, AtlanticCity.com
