Washington, D.C., September 21, 2015 -- Presidential hopeful Ben Carson stated on NBC's Meet the Press yesterday, he "I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation---I absolutely would not agree with that."

As an American Muslim, I was hoping that other Republican candidates for President would not out-trump Trump in making inappropriate and ugly remarks. Look who did it this time. It's Doctor Ben Carson. He is a great neurosurgeon and deserves respect, but he has crossed the line by advocating denying the right to a Muslim American in the future to be the president, a right which is guaranteed under the Constitution to all Americans who were born in the U.S., without regard to their religion.

He does not get what America is all about -- One does not indict an entire community for the criminal acts of a few. Carson should know better as the African Americans have been the subject of discrimination and guilt by association for a long time. If Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. was alive today he would not have been happy with Ben Carson for judging the character of others based on their religious faith alone.

Can Dr. Carson answer this question that was recently posed by a man from Dallas, "I am an African American Muslim born and raised in this great country; where am I in your vision of Making America Great Again?"

When Black Americans were enslaved, and did not have any rights, President Lincoln debated between being reelected and doing what is morally right; he chose the higher moral ground and issued the Emancipation Proclamation which began the process of freedom for millions of African-Americans. He will be remembered for eternity for standing up for the rights of all Americans, even a minority who did not have any rights at that time.

Later, the Women's suffrage bill was passed, giving the usurped rights of women back to them. Now women from both major political parties are running for the Presidency. As we have progressed, we have restored the inalienable rights of all Americans and we cannot go backwards.
"It is time for Ben Carson to issue an apology for having trampled upon the constitutional rights of a segment of the U.S. population or quit his quest for Presidency" added Ambassador Islam Siddiqui, President of the American Muslim Institution.
