Bronx Muslim Center’s founder weighs in on Bin Laden’s death

Mohammed Solaiman Ali, founder and general secretary of the Bronx Muslim Center commented in a phone interview on the death of Bin Laden and how many Bronx Muslims in the community are reacting.

“We are very proud of America. We were also afraid you know? We did not want another attack here or in another country. As a Muslim, I feel very proud. Obama is a good president…and today we will pray for our country. Bin Laden is an enemy of Islam we are against what he did. Today we are happy, this is great news. There is nothing in the Quran (or the Holy Book) that says to kill. Islam does not tolerate terrorists. I am very happy to hear this news.”
