Muslims Hold Rally to Denounce ISIS Terror Group

Shia Muslims gathered in Washington DC on Sunday in a multicultural show of anti-ISIS demonstrations, according to a statement released by Universal Muslim Association of America (UMAA).

The protesters marched from DuPont Circle to the White House chanting slogans denouncing the terror group.

Adil Rizvi, a protest organizer, said “The first step to stopping ISIS is for us to denounce them and show the world they are not a part of our community.”

In recent years, the overwhelming majority of ISIS victims have been Muslim civilians, although the terror group is now engaging in attacks against Western targets.

Another organizer Dr. Azmat Husain said “We are all victims of ISIS, every American and every Muslim, and we cannot let anything divide the close bonds of friendship and community the American Muslim community has developed with our neighbors.”

The demonstrators wore all black, a cultural display of mourning for both the victims of recent terror attacks, but also for Imam Husain, an important historical leader for Shiite Muslims.

Imam Husain, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad, was brutally attacked and killed when he advocated for the restoration of Islam to its peaceful and spiritual roots, contrary to the violence and corruption endemic to the ruler of his time.

Shiites believe the ideological inspiration for ISIS and other radical terror groups came from the killing of Imam Husain.

It is stated that children as young as ten were carrying posters that read “Muslims against ISIS” and “American Shia Muslims stand with the victims of San Bernardino.”

According to UMAA, Hijab clad women greeted viewers of the protest with dialogue about American Muslim antipathy towards ISIS and corrupt governments such as Saudi Arabia.
